Your benefits

  • Chemical recycling currently makes use of hard-to-recycle mixed plastic waste materials such as end-of-life car tires or mixed household waste.
  • The recycled feedstock is fed in at the beginning of the production network as a drop-in solution.
  • You do not need to change/adapt your production equipment and processes. Ccycled products are certified mass balanced products.
  • Virgin quality: suitable for food contact packaging with high hygiene requirements.
  • Ccycled products can be used in the same applications as the recycled plastic waste (e.g. packaging).
