– PET Upcycling with Loop technology

 - 

With more than 90% of plastic worldwide currently not being recycled, and much of it ending up in our landfills and shared rivers and oceans, there is a plastic crisis. There are several contributing factors to this crisis – and the inability to recycle much of these plastics is one of the more fundamental. Although some plastics are being recycled mechanically, this process has limitations including the ability to deal with contamination, additives and dyes often contained in recovered plastics. To help keep more plastics in the economy and out of the environment – to attain a fully circular economy – Loop Industries’ upcycling technology must be deployed.

In this presentation, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the transition to a circular plastic economy by exploring further the present situation in conventional plastic recycling and hearing an overview of Loop™ Industries waste PET and polyester fiber upcycling solution.
