Plast Nordic has been working with the Nordic value chain of plastic- and textile waste since 2019, this because there is a technology developed by gr3n SA, that enables the chemical recycling of PET plastic and polyester, commonly used in beverage bottles, food packaging, and textiles. They are now planning their first chemical recycling plant.
The final product will be a polymer from recycled monomers (ie terephthalic acid, TPA and monoethylene glycol, MEG) with the same properties as that of petroleum, which currently dominates the global market.
With around 430,000 tons of PET waste every year in the Nordic region, Plast Nordic aims to both reduce CO2 emissions and provide a unique sustainable solution for waste management in the Nordic countries.
