Driving Sustainability in Plastic Packaging Design, Recycling and Recovery
As we look for ways to enhance packaging sustainability and develop more circular packaging systems, we should remember functionality and environmental benefits often go hand-in-hand.
The Year of Advanced Recycling
Could THIS be the year that Advanced Recycling kicks up momentum?
Recovering Recyclable Materials in the Northeast
A new project assesses the viability of capturing additional recyclable plastics at sort.
Improvements to Packaging Recycling
Plastic makers’ respond to Extended Producer Responsibility legislation.
Through education, collaboration, new business models, and with the right set of domestic policies, we can continue to develop and scale innovative new technologies that can convert post-use plastics into a wide range of valuable end products.
ACC’s Plastics Division and its member companies have invested billions of dollars over the past few decades in establishing and expanding the infrastructure for mechanical recycling.
Advancing technologies can significantly expand the markets for used plastics both in the U.S. and globally, which will help keep plastics out of the environment and in productive use.
Plastic Waste Solutions
ACC and our members are deeply committed to ending plastic and other waste in the environment and creating a more circular economy for plastics.
