Chemical and Advanced Recycling: Emerging Roles for the Waste & Recycling Industry (WasteExpo 2021)

July 22, 2021

Over the next few years, some of our plastics will be recycled through chemical recycling, the process of converting plastic waste back to its constituent molecules so it can be recycled into new plastics. As pressure to recycle more kinds of plastics increases, companies are responding by developing commercial-scale chemical recycling facilities. Numerous challenges confront the companies developing these projects—one of the most challenging is securing a steady stream of appropriate plastic waste at reasonable costs in order to make the project viable. Listen to chemical recyclers discuss what, where, when and how they need materials—including plastics that may not have been considered recyclable before.
