Recycled feedstocks

Recycled feedstocks are materials or substances produced by the recycling of waste, which can be used as resources for the manufacture of new plastics. They can be either plastic materials, which are directly generated by mechanical or dissolution recycling, or plastics raw materials (monomers, pyrolysis oil) that are produced by chemical recycling and need to be processed further to become plastics.

The use of recycled feedstocks closes the loop of the plastics economy by using waste as a resource. It reduces the need to use conventional fossil resources and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.
