Can advanced recycling help the plastics industry meet their sustainability goals? In Plastics in Politics Live, Steve Toloken looks at the current state of chemical recycling, including recent statements from brand owners about where technologies, including chemical recycling, fit into their plans to use more post-consumer content.
He covered the ongoing issue of supply, and the question of whether regulators and policy makers will allow mass balance as a way of tracking post-consumer content. Toloken also discussed the results of recent surveys measuring public attitudes about chemical recycling.
In addition, he previewed the Plastics News Radio podcast series from the United Nations plastics treaty talks in Paris, which go live July 12 at PlasticsNews.com and wherever you listen to podcasts.
