Plastics Recycling: A Future for Plastic Waste

To achieve greater circularity, organisations have the opportunity to transform their plastics supply chain using the latest recycling technology

plastic sustainability

Today’s plastic challenge and the demand for a more circular economy is providing a driver for radical change in plastics supply chains.

Consumers, governments, NGOs, manufacturers and brands are all making firm commitments to transform their plastics supply chains to achieve greater circularity and work towards a ‘net zero’ future.

These include:

  • Reducing plastic content & waste;
  • Plastics recycling and recovering more plastic waste; 
  • Replacing plastic content with alternative materials (incl. biobased plastics) and recycled plastics.

In 2019, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation estimated that over 5.4 million tonnes of recycled plastics are needed in the global packaging sector alone by 2025 to reach these targets. Other key plastics sectors like construction, automotive and electronics also have ambitious goals to recycle plastic waste and use recycled content.

Plastics recycling solutions for a sustainable future

To achieve a Net Zero future, the transformation of supply chains and new forms of supply chain collaboration is needed to achieve these global commitments, with the help of innovative supply chain approaches and advanced plastic recycling technologies.
