A Sea Change: Plastics Pathway to Sustainability Special Report
Plastics sustainability is the most critical issue facing the plastics industry and is likely to lead to greater regulation (including bans) and deselection by consumers, retailers & brand owners. A Sea Change: Plastics Pathway to Sustainability special study helps stake holders move progressively to address the issues of plastics sustainability with extensive analysis and data quantifying the impacts.
The study deliverables include:
- Review of current and evolving government regulations and Consumer Product Companies' policies for plastics sustainability initiatives for major consuming geographies
- An in-depth review of the infrastructure disconnects between post-consumer recycle demand and supply.
- Demand analysis by detailed end-use segment for major polymers (LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PP, PS, EPS, PVC, PET) for the time period 2018-2030 for major demand centers (Europe, U.S. & Canada, China, India). The demand analysis compares a Base Trendline to a Maximum Viable Threshold view by assessing the potential for:
- de-selection via bans or alternative material
- increased use of post-consumer recycle content
- Global integrated supply/demand views for the major polymers base chemicals and associated feedstocks for 2018 - 2030 reflecting the changes associated by the Maximum Viable Threshold demand compare to the Base Trendline.
- Profile the major technologies for plastics recycling and the potential impact on PCR resin supply volumes.
- Assess the impact of PCR chemical recycling technologies on monomer and/or hydrocarbon supply.
