Elimination of
plastic waste

Our ambition is to be recognized worldwide as a company that develops the recycling supply chain in the regions where we operate and be a leader in recycling in the Americas. Our transition strategy to a circular economy is heavily based on mechanical and advanced recycling solutions. We continue to act in partnership with other organizations in our value chain to strengthen mechanical recycling, overcoming technical and logistical barriers to ensure the quality and quantity of recycled material. We also continue to work on improving advanced recycling technology and solutions. Advanced recycling refers to the process by which plastic is transformed back into raw material for new plastic or chemical products. .

Our performance

Our transition strategy to a circular economy is heavily based on mechanical and advanced recycling solutions. We continue to act in partnership with other organizations in our chain to strengthen mechanical recycling, overcoming technical and logistical barriers to ensure the quality and quantity of recycled material. We also continue to work on improving advanced recycling technology and solutions. Advanced recycling refers to the transformation of plastic waste into chemical inputs, fuels, or raw materials for the manufacture of new plastic products. .

 

Our strategy for a circular economy

In the mechanical recycling process, post-consumer plastic is crushed into smaller pieces before undergoing a process called extrusion and is then transformed into small granules called pellets.
