SUEZ announced the official opening of the SUEZ Circular Polymer Plant in Bang Phli, Thailand – the Group’s first plastic recycling plant in Asia. The project highlights SUEZ’s commitment to preserving the natural capital and building a more sustainable future, while contributing to Thailand’s ambitious 2030 target to achieve 100% plastic recycling.
The world produces 300 million tonnes of plastic every year, and 50% of it is used as packaging . Globally, more than 8 million tonnes of plastic waste are dumped into the ocean, of which Southeast Asia is a major contributor.
In Thailand, only about one quarter of its 2 million tonnes of plastic waste is recycled per year. Petrochemical Automotive Recycling Hydrogen
To tackle plastic pollution and protect the oceans, the SUEZ Circular Polymer Plant recycles low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) plastic. It is one of Thailand’s largest LDPE recycling plants and operates in the highest level of compliance. It is strongly supported by the experience of specialists from PLAST lab®, SUEZ’s innovative plastic laboratory dedicated to plastic recycling located in France, that allows the plant to qualify, characterise, measure and formulate new recycled plastics to fit customer’s specific needs.
UBQ’s tech allows companies to turn all types of waste – including food scraps and plants, various plastics, cartons and even dirty diapers – into useful raw materials, called thermoplastics.
The cleantech startup UBQ Materials from Kibbutz Tze’elim has signed an agreement with the Motherson Group, under which the company will be provided with UBQ’s innovative raw material, which works as an alternative to plastic, and will be produced using waste from Israeli residents.

Evanesto, l’additif commercialisé par Carbiolice, permet aux plastiques à forte teneur en acide polylactique (PLA) de répondre à la certification « OK compost Home » de TÜV Austria Group. Petrochemical Automotive Recycling Hydrogen
Pots de yaourt, capsules de café, barquettes, gobelets en plastique… Des plastiques à usage unique qui se compostent au milieu des épluchures et autres déchets organiques ? C’est désormais possible grâce à la solution commercialisée par Carbiolice.
Cette start-up française a en effet développé un additif naturel à base d’enzymes, Evanesto, facile à intégrer au moment de la fabrication du produit plastique d’origine végétal (PLA), et qui permet de le rendre 100 % compostable avec les déchets organiques de la maison. Evanesto s’utilise comme un colorant, ajouté au moment du process de fabrication. L’additif accélère alors la biodégradation intégrale sans particules résiduelles, et ce en maximum 180 jours, soit plus vite que la dégradation des feuilles d’arbre ramassées dans le jardin.
Vietnam’s textile and garment exports is set to fall 15 percent to $34 billion this year, the first drop in 25 years, over Covid-19 impacts. Petrochemical Automotive Recycling Hydrogen
With the Covid-19 situation remains serious in the U.S. and some European countries, exports to these markets will continue to face difficulties due to a shortage of orders, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said in a recent report.
The 15-percent decrease, however, is still lower than the 20-25 percent plunge in global demand this year, it said, adding that domestic companies have been making efforts to pump up revenue by producing lower-added value products to ensure cash flow.
HCMC-based Dony Garment is focusing on small orders. Pham Quang Anh, CEO, said that in the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, his company took on orders of millions of masks from buyers in the U.S. and the E.U, but now the company is accepting orders as low as 36,000 units.
Centre’s decision to form a dedicated Export Promotion Council (EPC) for ‘Technical Textiles’ will boost exports and strengthen the domestic manufacturing capacity, industry players said. Petrochemical Automotive Recycling Hydrogen
In terms of parlance, this category comprise of utility based textile products such as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
In February 2020, Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had approved the setting up of a National Technical Textiles Mission (NTM) with a total outlay of Rs 1,480 crore which will be implemented during 2020-21 to 2023-24.
Setting up of a dedicated Export Promotion Council is one of the four components of the NTM which is aimed mainly to achieve a 10 per cent growth rate every year until NTM ends.
Currently, India’s export is $93 mn whereas global market is estimated to be $11 bn for 12 apparel products under technical textiles.
Chemical Recycling transforms plastic into basic petrochemical inputs, such as monomers and hydrocarbons. There plastic component elements serve as raw material for making new products – which may ou may not be plastic. One of the advantages of chemical recycling is that we can use different plastic mixtures, which often complicates mechanical recycling. This technique also ensures plastic production with the same quality as original polymer. Petrochemical Automotive Recycling Hydrogen
Since 2005, Braskem uses the life cycle assessment (LCA) to better understand the aspects related to the sustainability of its value chain. The information generated by the LCA substantiates the company’s business decisions. Also in the value chain, Braskem created the Rede Empresarial Brasileira de ACV (Brazilian LCA Business Network), a forum that gathers companies to discuss the notion of LCA and to disseminate best practices while applying the tool in the business environment.
Another Braskem initiative is the WeCycle platform, created to develop businesses and initiatives focusing on enriching plastic residues through partnerships. The goal is to bring reliability and quality to the development of products, solutions and processes involved in each link of the plastic recycling chain.
