As much as 50 per cent of plastics can be recycled using traditional mechanical recycling methods; however, the remaining 50 per cent requires more innovative advanced technologies to harness the inherent value of post-use plastics.
In 2019, the federal government committed to the goal of net-zero emissions for all of Canada by 2050 and in 2020, the Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act came
into force. Achieving this will require chemistry-based solutions, which includes the plastics sector.
Responsibly managed plastic products are sustainable solutions for countless industries: they are integral to energy efficient buildings; lightweight, low emission and electric vehicles; and durable and light food packaging to prevent spoilage and extend shelf life of perishable foods.
