-How sustainability is driving growth in chemical recycling capacity

As the world increases its focus on the climate crisis, sustainability has risen to sit high on the agenda of industry and government alike. The pace of change in transitioning to a circular economy has been rapid in recent years. The result for the plastics industry across the globe has been that end markets – major brands, retailers, and consumer goods producers – have made pledges to deliver more sustainable solutions in products and packaging, with an overall objective of shifting away from fossil fuel-based feedstocks.

Regulations and pledges from brand owners have contributed to a growing demand for recycled plastics globally, particularly for use in food and beverage packaging. However, the current supply of high quality mechanically recycled polymers remains short of the demand, especially for food grade recycled polymers. Hence the growing interest and adoption of chemical recycling.

Currently, there are over 45 million tons of recycled polymers globally – recycled polyethylene (R-PE), recycled propylene (R-PP) and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET) – which represents less than 10% of global annual polymer capacity, according to the ICIS Mechanical Recycling Supply Tracker. This constrains supply available to the end markets and when looking further at those recycled polymers suitable for food contact applications this supply reduces yet further. Globally, food grade mechanical recycled resins currently represent only 10% of the annual capacity of recycled polymers, and therefore 1% of annual total polymer capacity. The availability of food grade varies between resins, with over 20% of global R-PET capacity food grade compared to 3% of polyolefins.

-What’s on the horizon for PET recyclers in 2022 and beyond?

Petcore Europe has set a date for its annual conference, which will take place on 2-3 February. The two-day event will be held at DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels City.

‘Registration is already open. We are looking forward to meeting you in person after such a challenging period,’ Petcore Europe says. The organisation expects over 200 delegates to attend the conference. Important topics to be discussed include market trends for virgin and recycled plastics, new legislation, circular economy initiatives and the latest sorting trends.
