In July 2022 Dow and Mura Technology announced their joint commitment to scale the chemical recycling of plastics.

The two corporations plan to build multiple 120 Kt facilities in Europe and other regions – collectively adding as much as 600 Kt of aggregate chemical recycling capacity by 2030.Dow’s role in the partnership is to become a key off-taker of circular feedstock that Mura produces. This circular feedstock, derived from plastic waste currently destined for landfill or incineration, reduces reliance on fossil-based feedstocks and will enable Dow to produce a recycled plastic feedstock for the development of new, virgin-grade plastics which are in high demand from global brands. By using chemical recycling as a complementary technology to mechanical recycling, Dow is making significant progress towards its sustainability, climate and plastic waste reduction targets.
