AMI, Bristol, January 2023 – AMI’s second authoritative report on the global chemical recycling industry identifies a global chemical recycling input capacity of close to 1.2 million tonnes in 2022, excluding facilities processing post-use plastics into fuels.

Having identified 2023 as a pivotal year for industry development, expectations are high for additional capacity coming onstream. Just looking at the last quarter of 2022 and the year 2023 a total of 22 companies globally announced plans to start commercial demonstration facilities and fully commercial chemical recycling facilities during this period, with a focus on Europe, followed by North America.

In response to the continuing fast speed of industry developments AMI, from the end of Q1 onwards, will launch a subscription offer for the report, featuring quarterly updates of global developments in both quantitative and qualitative terms.
