    Ongoing trials, with one of the world’s largest restaurant companies, presents a significant step forward in developing renewable products, reducing emissions and waste. 

    Mike Nagle, CEO INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA said. “We believe the future of packaging materials needs to become more circular wherever possible. Working together with our customers, we can help them to meet their pledges and commitments in this area. To take plastic waste back to virgin plastic is the ultimate definition of recycling and will create a truly circular approach.”
