Recycling Innovations

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.


Mechanical Recycling

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.


Advanced 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.
