Chemical Recycling: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Register Here

With more than 15 million metric tons of plastic entering our oceans each year, it’s clear that we’ve got a problem on our hands. Yet, rather than reducing plastic production, the petrochemical industry is now promoting “chemical recycling” as a solution. Unfortunately, chemical recycling is an expensive, energy-intensive, and highly polluting technology that will not solve our plastic pollution crisis but will hasten climate change and threaten our environment and health.
