Plastic-Packaging-News-Today-100-percent-packaging-diversion

The Washington-based American Chemistry Council (ACC) and its Plastics Division have announced three goals it says “crystallize U.S. plastics producers’ commitment to recycle or recover all plastic packaging used in the United States by 2040.”

As part of that goal, the ACC says it intends “to further enhance plastic pellet stewardship by 2022.”

To achieve the stated goals, plastic producers plan to focus on six key areas: 1) designing new products for greater efficiency, recycling and reuse; 2) developing new technologies and systems for collecting, sorting, recycling and recovering materials; 3) making it easier for more consumers to participate in recycling and recovery programs; 4) expanding the types of plastics collected and re-purposed; 5) aligning products with key end markets; and 6) expanding awareness that plastic scrap is a valuable resource awaiting its next use.
