Project Summary

Thailand is prioritizing the pursuit of a Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) Economy for its APEC host year. Chemical recycling supports Thailand’s priority by converting post-use plastics into valuable products and converting harder-to-recycle plastics into feedstocks for manufacturing supply chains. Chemical recycling conserves natural resources, drives down GHGs, creates new domestic jobs, and diverts plastic waste from incinerators and our oceans. This project will convene a series of webinars to explore the benefits of chemical recycling in a circular economy, and ways to improve its uptake and scalability (including enabling policies and regulations). The webinars will discuss how chemical recycling can be operationalized, providing case studies/pilot projects of chemical recycling, and how governments can enable the expansion of this technology. Additional webinars will discuss the tools needed to scale up chemical recycling operations, including the need for common terminology and standards and the importance of developing independent third-party certification to verify recycled plastics in packaging.
