IKEA has a vision to create a better life for the many people and to have a positive impact on people and the planet. IKEA recognises that to create a positive impact for people and planet, we must use our global reach and scale to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. We are on a journey to become circular in all aspects. The IKEA plastic pledge is part of this journey.
Repsol’s approach is to manufacture polymer composites with a maximum % of recycled content that does not undermine the functionality of the virgin raw material in the final application. Repsol will also make a proposal to incorporate recycled plastics in the formulation of our multilayer 25 kg industrial bags for pellets, contributing to directly create a larger demand of recycled plastics.
SCS is the joint industry initiative to significantly increase the circularity of styrenics by building on PS’ unique intrinsic capacity for circularity. Game-changing technologies such as depolymerisation back to its constituent monomer and dissolution will enable recycled PS to be used over and over again in its original applications, including food contact.
Plastix is a manufacturer of ‘Green Plastics’. Plastix converts used fibres, primarily fishnets, trawls and ropes from the maritime industry that would previously have ended up in the ocean or on landfill, into high-grade and virgin-like Green Plastic raw materials. Plastix’ production output, our products, is branded OceanIX rHDPE and OceanIX rPPC, NordIX rHDPE and NordIX rPPC.
Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH (NGR), AUSTRIA. Development and standardization of a plastic-melt inline inspection unit. Real-time quality-monitoring of rPM-quality will lead to higher confidence in quality and increase the use of rPMs. The gathered information leads to improvements up and down the value chain - enhancing the drive for higher quality, at comparably moderate costs.
EuPC pledges to consolidate per polymer type and register at EU and national level all recycled polymers used by plastics converters in different markets to reach the goal of 10 million T of use of recycled plastics between 2025 and 2030.
