Plastic production is increasing exponentially as the demand for resources continues to grow. In 2020, 360 million tons of plastic have been produced, equivalent to 50 Kg per habitant, and only 8% of plastic production is integrated into a circular loop.
From a carbon resource perspective, it means that today only 13% is saved through recycling, while 87% of these resources are lost either by
incineration or landfill.
Converting plastic waste into valuable resources is therefore today a real concern for the plastic industry to reduce pollution at a sustainable cost.
Rewind® Mix is an answer to this concern as it provides a complete solution to turn any plastic pyrolysis oil into perfect feedstock for steam cracking to make new plastics suitable for any application, including food contact packaging.
