Ending Plastic Waste

Plastics make modern society possible and often are a more sustainable material than alternatives. Our goal is to help eliminate plastic waste in the environment and maximize the value of plastics by keeping these resources in use for as long as possible.

   

 

How We'll Do It

  • Develop mechanical and advanced (molecular) recycling solutions to meet customers’ and brand owners’ circularity goals.

  • Support policies that advance a circular economy for plastics.

  • Partner externally on initiatives to prevent waste from entering the environment and further develop plastic waste management systems.

 

Goals

  • Produce and market two million metric tons of recycled and renewable based polymers annually by 2030.
  • Reuse, recycle and/or recover 100% of plastic packaging worldwide by 2040.*
  • Zero loss of plastic pellets to the environment from our operations and supply chain.
*This goal was set and agreed to by the member companies of PlasticsEurope and The American Chemistry Council.

 

Learn About Advanced Recycling

Our proprietary MoReTec technology aims to return plastic waste to its molecular form for use as feedstock for new plastic materials. The products produced can be used in a wide range of applications including food packaging and medical supplies, which are subjected to more stringent regulatory standards.

 

Learn About Mechanical Recycling

Our joint venture, Quality Circular Polymers (QCP), is a premium plastics recycling company. QCP uses a mechanical recycling process to produce premium plastic pellets from plastic waste for use in a range of applications including electrical appliances, washing detergent bottles and suitcases.
