ACCELERATING CIRCULAR SUPPLY CHAINS FOR PLASTICS: A LANDSCAPE OF TRANSFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES THAT STOP PLASTIC WASTE, KEEP MATERIALS IN PLAY AND GROW MARKETS
The Center for the Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners is committed to
accelerating solutions for more circular supply chains at scale. Over the past year,
the Center has been exploring innovative technologies that effectively transform
waste plastics into like-new materials. While many have tremendous potential,
they also challenge us to expand our current definition of recycling.
Closed Loop Partners undertook this project to learn more about technologies
and their potential role in scaling circular supply chains, transforming markets,
and stopping plastics waste in the US and Canada. The goal of this report
is to reflect the current landscape of technology providers focused on
converting waste plastics into a variety of safe and high-quality materials,
as well as the scale of opportunity for these providers to meet demand.
