Solutions for Recycling of Mixed Stream Plastics

Solutions for Recycling of Mixed Stream Plastics

Jill Martin
Dow Chemical Company

The plastics industry is under intense pressure to develop solutions that maximize the value of the materials through the entire product life cycle. Materials that have better physical properties have inherently higher value after mechanical recycling and can provide a benefit to the entire packaging value chain. Dow and duPont have recently merged their portfolio of products that provide the opportunity to maximize this value. Case studies that reflect the various recycling stream compositions will be presented in addition to new developments.
