Closing the Loop with Chemical Recycling of PLA

09 Jun 2022
Closing the Loop on Plastic Waste
TotalEnergies-Corbion has launched a chemical recycling program to close the loop on PLA.  This technology is able to convert PLA resin back into our monomer feed stock allowing for repolymerization into virgin material instead of downcycling via mechanical recycling.  Our advanced recycling process is low-energy and efficient compared to procuring new feed stocks and other chemical recycling processes.
