    BUILDING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY CONTRIBUTES TO U.N. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION GOAL A well-crafted global agreement to eliminate plastic pollution can help accelerate a circular economy for plastics, which will benefit parts of the U.N.’s responsible consumption and production goal. United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #12:Ensure sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns SDG 12 is […] Read more

  • Designing for Circularity

    DESIGNING FOR CIRCULARITY A global agreement can foster the use of plastic products and packaging that are designed to be reused and remade into new products. This helps eliminate plastic waste and conserves our natural resources. Circularity = using plastics (or any resource) more efficiently by In other words, we keep the molecules in play […] Read more

  • The Role Additives Play in Plastics

    ADDITIVES IN PLASTICS & A CIRCULAR ECONOMY A well-crafted global agreement would accelerate a circular economy for plastics – and support the safe, transparent use of chemical additives. The role additives play in plastics Plastic makers typically convert raw materials (monomers) into polymers, which are chains of molecules, by applying heat and pressure in the […] Read more

  • Chemical Recycling Technologies

    CHEMICAL RECYCLINGTECHNOLOGIES FOR PLASTICS Chemical recycling technologies have the potential to dramatically increase the types and amount of plastics that can be recycled. Mechanical and Chemical Recycling Today, most plastics recycling is done mechanically. Mechanical re-processors use heat and pressure to return used plastics to their solid form (typically small pellets). This process involves a […] Read more
