Chemical Recycling: State of Play report

ChemTrust published a report prepared by consultancy Eunomia on the state of play of chemical recycling. The 74-page report provides an overview of the current state of chemical recycling initiatives, and highlights the promises and shortcomings of this approach.

The overall message is that while these technologies (solvent purification, chemical and thermal depolymerization) show promise, there is still a significant way to go to solve the issues with high energy use, requirements for high-quality sorted input waste streams, and hazardous chemical use and production.
