Turning waste PET plastic and polyester fiber into feedstock through its depolymerization technology is one of the most environmentally sustainable methods for producing virgin-quality, food-grade PET plastic in the world, said the company.
Responding to Nestlé’s announcement that it would begin making its single-use packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025, Greenpeace said that the global giant should “innovate away from the single-use model entirely.”
“Everyone from plastic producers to converters to brand owners to retailers are part of this effort. We need to ensure people have access to the benefits of plastics while we solve the problem of plastic waste,” said LyondellBasel CEO Bob Patel.
In spite of the plastics industry’s best efforts to help developing countries deal with their trash problems, as the Alliance to End Plastic Waste aims to do, nothing will satisfy environmental activist groups short of ridding the world of plastic, period.
