Recycled polymer shortages and the shift to mixed plastic waste
Date: 20 April 2022, Wednesday
Time: 12:00-13:00 BST

Presented by ICIS expert, Mark Victory, this webinar will give you insight into the recycled polymer market. Are you thinking of joining the European Polymer Conference: PET, Polyolefins & Recycled Plastics on 9-10 May? This is your perfect opportunity to join the conversation on recycled plastics as a teaser to the conference.

What's in this webinar for you

Record high prices for recycled polyolefins and limited feedstock waste bale availability are disrupting market dynamics. Mixed polyolefin grades have become economically viable for mechanical recyclers and are being used to make up mono-material shortfalls.

As a result, chemical recyclers are now being forced to shift to new mixed plastic waste inputs to avoid competing with mechanical recycling. Let Mark talk you through the new market dynamics and explore whether these changes are here for the medium or long term.

Discover how these supply and demand changes will affect your business in this free 1-hour webinar.

This webinar will:

• Look at both mechanical and chemical recycled polyolefins markets and how they are changing
• Examine whether structural shortages are transitory or have become endemic
• Analyse the impact shortages have had on both the mono-material and mixed polyolefin waste markets
• Explore the changing shape of the chemical recycling sector and the implications for waste infrastructure
