The Global Partnership on Marine Litter
Date and Time : Dec 18, 2019 12:00 PM in Universal Time UTC
Chemical Recycling 101
Description: The focus on chemical recycling has intensified in the recent past. Many are looking at it as a solution to our mixed waste streams. But, what is chemical recycling and how does the process differ from recovery and mechanical recycling? We try to cover several aspects of these questions in this panel, moderated by Adam Read. We look at opportunities for chemical recycling to boost recycling rates and enable new materials to be targeted. We also discuss what are the barriers to wider implementation, including costs, perceptions and stakeholder interests. Finally, we will reflect on where chemical recycling fits into a circular economy and a revised waste hierarchy and its potential use in all geographies and locations.
Paula Luu is a Project Director at Closed Loop Partners, an investment and advisory services firm focused on building the circular economy.
Adrian Haworth was the Sales and Marketing Director of Recycling Technologies from 2013 to 2019 and continues as a consultant to the company.
Adam Read is the moderator of this interaction. He is the Director of External Affairs at SUEZ Recycling & Recovery.
