Polymer Lifecycle Challenges for the Betterment of Society and the Environment

Introduction

Polymers play an ever-expanding role in our everyday lives. Some are easy to identify, such as food packaging, but many others are hidden in the everyday things all around us, from automotive parts to electronic circuit boards and the insulation in our homes. This White Paper explains the polymer production chain and the challenges involved. It explores the benefits of plastic recycling including testing of recyclate materials and its role in a sustainable future and the circular economy.
