Chemical Recycling: Navigating the Landscape of Innovative Technologies and Scaling Challenges

Chemical recycling and the dissolution of plastic waste fall under the umbrella term of advanced recycling technologies. They are all attempting to solve one of the most critical problems of the 21st century: how to manage plastic waste. Present mechanical recycling methods are only applicable to easy to recycle plastics with degradation of material properties difficult to avoid. Chemical recycling and dissolution methods aim to replace linear plastic lifecycles with a circular economy while maintaining the material properties delivered by virgin fossil-derived plastics. Many hurdles need to be overcome for this circular approach to meet the demand currently posed by fast-increasing global plastic production.
In this webinar, IDTechEx will cover the challenges being faced by the chemical recycling of plastics industry, which need to be considered as companies scale and these technologies are adopted on a wider scale.
The webinar will include:
  • An overview of chemical recycling of plastic technologies
  • Challenges to adoption and scaling
  • The challenges faced by enzymatic depolymerization
  • Chain of custody approaches
  • IDTechEx's outlook and conclusions
IDTechEx's new market report, "Chemical Recycling and Dissolution of Plastics 2024-2034: Technologies, Players, Markets, Forecasts", looks to answer these questions by covering in depth the advanced plastic recycling market, including technology developments, legislative updates, company landscapes, market information, partnership information, segmented forecasts, and the latest key research areas.
