We can close the loop when materials can be recycled with consistent quality. Glass and paper, for example, can be reused to make packaging or products again.
But plastics recycling continues to pose a major challenge – and global plastic production is still on the rise.
So, how do we manage to keep plastic packaging in circulation?
Currently, two recycling technologies are used:
- Mechanical recycling is the shortest and most eco-friendly for simply designed packaging and monomaterials.
- Chemical recycling is a complementary technology that can close the loop for complex packaging and mixed plastic waste.
