Circular Economy of Polymer: Challenges and Solutions

Circular Economy of Polymer: Challenges and Solutions
IMG - Circular Economy of Polymer: Challenges and Solutions

There is a lot of global attention in reducing plastic waste and increasing recycling rates of plastics. In this presentation the SABIC approach towards circularity of plastics (TRUCIRCLE) will be explained. The focus will be on plastic applications enabling higher recycling rates and on the sorting and analytical challenges related to the different recycling technologies. The presentation will look to mechanical and chemical recycling and to the design for circularity of plastic applications.
