Introduction to Recycling of Engineering Polymers Europe 2023

Published: December 2023

This study is an introduction to engineering polymers, from a recycling perspective. It aims to explore the market for both mechanical and chemical recycling of ABS/SAN, PC, PA, PBT, POM, and PMMA as well as end-use applications for recyclates.

It covers the waste plastics value chain for these polymers, including the collection and sorting from key application areas, the companies processing the waste, and the end-use markets for recyclate. With evaluation of the current operating environment, key trends shaping the industry as well as up-to-date databases on mechanical and chemical recyclers, it allows for visibility on the current and future status of the market.

At the centre of our research is our in-depth conversations with industry participants across the engineering plastics value chain.

Included with the report is a database of 446 mechanical recyclers in Europe processing at least one of these polymers, as well as profiles of 29 companies involved in chemical recycling projects involving engineering polymers globally.
