Join us on May 10th at 2PM (EDT) for the Plastics in Politics Livestream.

We’ll talk about the Canada Plastics Pact adopting design rules around plastics packaging, including design changes in some harder-to-recycle formats like flexibles and thermoform packaging.

As well, we’ll talk about the pact sees reducing virgin resin use as a rising trend. In the U.S., the industry has scored some wins with chemical recycling legislation in states in recent weeks, but it’s also seeing skepticism about that political push in state capitols.

Join us on May 3 at 10AM EDT/3PM GMT/4PM CET for a Sustainable Plastics Livestream sponsored by Trinseo.

Consumer goods companies and resin suppliers are counting on chemical recycling to boost the quality and quantity of recycled plastic. Some products using chemically recycled resins have been commercialized. But the sector has had some missteps, and critics say it is just greenwashing. What’s the future look like for chemical recycling, and how could it impact mechanical recycling?
