The presentation will discuss proven closed-loop recycling technologies for food packaging. Plastic packaging materials and waste face increasingly stringent sustainability targets on a global basis. To realize the vision of a circular economy, chemical recycling plays a vital role in decreasing fossil resource depletion and plastic waste as a whole. The presentation will cover chemical recycling technology, among others, to illustrate the infinite recyclability of polystyrene. It is a technology that unlocks circularity and helps create a truly sustainable future for food contact applications. The transition to a circular economy requires the concerted efforts of the whole value chain. The styrenics value chain has a particularly large role because of such technology and polystyrene's unique properties.
