SUEZ teams up with SCG to offer post-consumer recycled plastics to drive a plastics economy in Southeast Asia
PCR offers a solution to closing the loop on plastic packaging. In fact, recycled plastics cut energy consumption by up to 90% compared to virgin plastic that is derived from oil. As more brand owners in Southeast Asia are pushing to adopt more recyclable materials in their production, the availability of quality PCR will help achieve a plastics economy where plastic never becomes waste or pollution through elimination, innovation and circulation.
Tanawong Areeratchakul, President of Chemicals Business, SCG, said, "SCG's operations have placed considerable importance on creating products and services that align with the circular economy with the aim of becoming the leader in sustainable business in ASEAN. The partnership with SUEZ, a key player in plastic recycling with 9 specialist factories around the world, will accelerate the development of recycled products and minimise the leakage of plastic waste into the environment. This is a good business solution that is conducive to environmental protection.”
