An industry as vast in depth and breadth as plastics produces opportunities and news just as vast.

Who can know much less read even a fraction of it?

That’s why we’ve collected the top-read articles of September from the dozens of articles posted the past month. What’s important for your counterparts across the plastics business is likely important for you to know, too.

Here are the top 10 articles our audience of plastics professionals found compelling last month, based on page views. If there's any common theme other than sustainability, it's diversity. Topics ranged from a $12 billion takeover bid, microwavable plastics concerns, a new XPET packaging factor, and a new source for polymers to a surprising new use for waste plastics.

We've listed them in reverse order starting with #10.
