The Global Mechanical Plastics Recycling Industry 2020

Published: May 2020

  • In the 1980s, global polymer demand was at 40 million tonnes. Now, it’s surpassed 275 million tonnes. This very successful, new material is thriving in most countries, but it’s under the spotlight – increasingly on the agenda of governments around the globe. New policies and legislation bring new targets for plastics recycling, reuse and landfilling.

    Meeting the industry targets will require the development of a new supply chain, investments in capacity, closed-loop recycling and sorting technology – at national level.
