INEOS Styrolution and Indaver working together to make polystyrene circular

Current mechanical recycling of plastics cannot deal with all plastic waste and thus additional technologies are needed to make plastic circular. One of the most promising ones is chemical recycling, also called feedstock recycling because plastic waste is ‘deconstructed’ into building blocks, monomers or other chemicals, that can ‘feed’ back to the beginning of the chemical value chains thus serving as alternatives to currently used feedstock. A specific type of chemical recycling is depolymerisation: this breaks down the […]
