Advancing Circular Economy Policies
To help keep plastic packaging out of the environment and in productive use, public policy both at home and abroad should be designed to improve waste management and recovery of used plastics… and expand the multiple ways used plastics can be repurposed to create valuable new products.
Plastic makers support the RECOVER Act (Realizing the Economic Opportunities and Value of Expanding Recycling) that would create federal grants to aid recycling facilities and the use of recycled materials.
Plastic makers support state legislation that expands opportunities for new technologies that repurpose used plastics into multiple products, such as industrial chemicals/products, transportation fuels, and raw materials for new plastics.
