Coming Soon:

First-of-Its-Kind Report on Advanced Plastics Recycling Technologies

How do we transition to a circular, safe and profitable plastics recycling system?

Building on Closed Loop Partners’ Accelerating Circular Systems for Plastics Initiative and first advanced recycling report, this report will summarize key findings from our financial, supply chain, environmental health impact and human health impact analyses of diverse advanced recycling technology solutions within this early-stage sector.

 

What will be covered:

(1) economic viability of advanced recycling technologies,

(2) lifecycle assessment (LCA) results and human health risk assessment of different technology processes

(3) key recommendations to scale safe and circular solutions to plastic waste

(4) considerations for policies to support and ensure that the sector finds an optimal place within the circular economy.

 

This report will also include an investor handbook to help navigate the current investment landscape for advanced recycling in the U.S. and Canada.

Before the report’s release, we invite you to join our webinar to get a preview of key findings from our report.

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. Advanced 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 advanced 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.
