Chemical Recycling in Spain: Fostering a Circular Future (English version)

Spain is the first Member State in the EU to include chemical recycling in a legislative document (Law on Waste and Contaminated Soil for a Circular Economy).

For chemical recycling to be reliably implemented in this country, public-private collaboration, together with the rest of the agents in the value chain, is a fundamental condition, together with a stable and predictable regulatory framework that defines recycling based on technological neutrality.

This document is completed with a description of the 10 myths that currently exist around chemical recycling that must be refuted with scientific arguments since they give rise to unfounded prejudices about these technologies.

In summary, this report offers a present and future overview of the chemical recycling industry in Spain and its potential contribution to the circular economy and climate neutrality.
