Plastic Waste – Sorting Through Solutions

Closing the Loop on Plastic Waste
2020 ushered in  a new world: one where sustainability is king—but also one where single use plastics are an important part of everyday life, particularly mixed plastics (such as masks).  While efforts to reduce and reuse some materials are growing (and there has been significant effort in shopping bags and straws), some applications are non-recourse (e.g., medical and sanitary) and require end-of-life solutions to deal with the growing levels of plastic wastes.   NexantECA has investigated the various options for plastic waste recycling and presents key findings from our reports, and an outlook on the industry.
