The certified circular polymers will be produced from a feedstock known as Tacoil – a patented product from UK-based Plastic Energy Ltd – from the recycling of low quality, mixed plastic waste otherwise destined for incineration or landfill. Sabic will process this feedstock on its production site at Geleen in The Netherlands. The finished certified circular polymers will then be supplied to the three key customers to use in their development of pioneering, high quality and safe consumer packaging for food, beverage, personal and home care products.
