Closing the loop with food grade recycled content - Is Chemical Recycling the solution? 

Can advanced/ chemical recycling close the loop with food grade recycled content ?

Until now, recycling plastic has chiefly been mechanical, limiting the scope of plastics that can be recycled and their applications especially for food packaging.

Chemical recycling that produces virgin-like quality plastic has certainly seen many recent breakthroughs in applications with more stringent requirements such as those found in the food packaging industries.

It is noted that chemical recycling technologies require large amounts of energy , clean, homogenous waste streams to produce good quality outputs.

How do you effectively measure and allocate recycled content in plastics packaging for food contact materials ? What are the environmental impacts and unknown purity that could exist ?

In this event, you will receive

•  Regulatory clarity on the recently released European Commission’s Chemicals strategy for
    Sustainability and how it will impact chemical recycling for food contact

•  New developments on mass balance approach to measuring recycled content from chemically
    recycled plastics

•  Closing the loop for food grade packaging solutions from polystyrene, flexible films and many more
