In a world where fossil fuels are increasingly being avoided, and the mounting problem of plastic waste management intensifies, a new approach to plastic waste has attracted much attention. Advanced recycling technologies such as chemical recycling and the dissolution of plastic waste aim to increase the circularity of the plastics economy.

Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) will be needed to reach any international net zero emission targets and avoid global warming beyond 1.5-2°C. Negative emissions technologies (NETs), especially those that go beyond nature-based approaches to provide long-lasting scalable CO2 removals, have therefore been receiving increased support through government policy and voluntary carbon credit purchases from corporations with ambitious climate goals. IDTechEx predicts that by 2044, the world’s capacity for such durable, engineered CO2 removals will exceed 630 megatonnes per annum.

Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman and Managing Director, UFlex Limited, today released a report on “Proposed National Standard for Scientific Estimation of Recycled Content” for EPR reporting at an event organized and hosted by Plastic Packaging Research and Development Centre (PPRDC).

Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals focused on sustainable solutions, and Cotton Incorporated, the research and promotion company for cotton, have renewed their eight-year collaboration to help accelerate the shift to more sustainable circular economy.

Integrated textile mill Nuevo Mundo is partnering with Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals focused on sustainable solutions, to offer collections utilizing Archroma’s EarthColors® agricultural waste based dyes and produced with zero liquid discharge and substantial resource savings.

SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, announced today that FE Tooling selected ULTEM™ resin to manufacture structural components used in PEMWE applications. The Chinese manufacturer chose ULTEM resin for the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) support film, bipolar plate frames and insulation boards because of its excellent properties, such as compressive strength, creep resistance, high modulus, hydro-stability in acids and low ion leaching. ULTEM resin can facilitate assembly and help enable reliable and safe long-term operation of the PEMWE system.
