PU Europe joins the European Chemical Recycling Coalition

Owing to the importance of the chemical recycling pathway for the polyurethane thermal insulation industry, PU Europe joins its bespoke European Coalition

The aim of the coalition, which has been initiated by CEFIC & PlasticsEurope, is to work together to address key and common issues concerning chemical recycling collectively. The coalition will operate to maximise common understanding. It brings together associations along the plastic/thermoset value chains with an interest in the development and deployment of chemical recycling. The coalition highlights the potential of chemical recycling as a complementing step in the complete solution for the circularity of plastics/thermosets.

As one of the solutions to operationalise the Circular Economy agenda, chemical recycling can bring polyurethane molecules from our long lasting products (50 y +) back into the European economy. Furthermore, this pathway already contributes to bringing plastic waste, from drinking bottles for instance, into the construction sector.
