SUEZ Circular Polymer plastic recycling plant becomes Thailand's first recycled plastics processor accredited by PCX

The SUEZ Circular Polymer (SCP) plastic recycling plant in Bang Phli, Thailand, has been officially accredited by the Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX) plastic offset platform. The plant is the first processor in Thailand to be recognised by PCX.
The plant converts 30,000 tonnes of locally sourced LDPE and LLDPE plastic packaging waste into high-quality post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics replacing fossil resources to produce films and bags for the industry. SCP, of which operations started in 2020, is designed to achieve one of the highest water reuse rates for recycling plants in the country and helps avoid 35,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.

The SCP plant has been recognised as a PCX-accredited processor on the basis of an independent assessment conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers. This confirms SUEZ’s operations are in compliance with PCX’s Plastic Pollution Reduction Standard, which provides a framework for the implementation of a credible and verifiable plastic offsetting programme.

The plastic pollution crisis is a global problem that requires a global solution. Expanding it to partners outside of the Philippines not only means we are expanding our impact footprint, but also helping Thailand achieve its goal of 100% recycling by 2030. We look forward to SUEZ’s contribution to the innovation needed in this space and are excited to see operations begin this month,” said PCX Standards and Compliance Manager Richard De Guzman.
