Sign Up to Attend Closed Loop Partners’ Molecular Recycling Webinar
We launched our Advancing Circular Systems for Plastics and Packaging Initiative because we envision a future free of waste, where reuse and refill systems reduce the need for virgin plastics and extend the lifespan of products, and where all kinds of plastics are continually reused or transformed, never reaching landfill. To achieve this, we need tight, closed material loops and a set of complementary solutions that capture waste at every point. Mechanical recycling helps recapture the value of select plastic packaging after their final use. But reuse systems and mechanical recycling still cannot serve all materials and markets perfectly or in perpetuity. Molecular recycling technologies contribute an important piece to the puzzle, solving for our hardest-to-recycle plastic-based products, like healthcare-related plastics, plastic film, textiles and building materials.
Since launching our initiative, we have been exploring the latest molecular recycling technologies. Many have tremendous potential, and have challenged us to expand our definition of recycling, while opening up the scope of diverse types of plastics that we can recycle with these solutions.
