There has been a consistent growth in polyolefins demand due to rapid industrialization and robust e-commerce especially for packaging applications, food and beverage sector, consumer electronics, automotive and consumer goods. What is the future of polyolefins given that sustainability is on every company’s agenda?
Brand-owners globally have ambitious goals to meet their sustainable targets but obtaining recycled plastics for more sustainable packaging seems to be a challenge as there are limited recycled plastics available! Brand-owners including P&G is working with suppliers to increase the output of recycled plastic and is developing new processing technology that can more easily recycle materials such as polypropylene.
Virgin resin producers from LyondellBasell, Borealis, Dow, Sabic & more are taking the opportunity to expand portfolios into circular plastics while improving their recyclates supply.
Mass balance is a crucial instrument in driving the transition to a circular economy and is thus critical to our industry's future development by increasing the use of circular feedstock and enabling more companies to establish their sustainable credentials. It is an effective way of increasing both the recycled and renewable content of a product, leading to a reduced climate and environmental footprint over their lifecycle.
