Advancing renewable feedstocks
Though feedstocks are typically derived from fossil fuels, they don’t have to be. Our pioneering work in developing ECOLIBRIUM™ Technology allows us to transform bio-based, sustainably sourced waste and by-products from other industries into feedstocks with a lower carbon impact.
Ensuring feedstocks have a circular future
To create a truly circular polymer, the world needed a way of turning used plastics back into high-quality feedstock to make virgin-like plastic. And in collaboration with advanced recycling technology companies, we’ve developed such a process. Using it, we’re capable of turning plastic waste into feedstocks that can create new, durable, food-grade polymers that are resource efficient—and ultimately drive sustainable circularity by giving value to what once was considered waste.
See it in action
See how we’re collaborating to create polymers made with more sustainable feedstocks, including bio-based and those developed from advanced recycling.

Meeting the demand for better
Businesses and consumers alike want change. And to meet that, we’ve dramatically increased the number of sustainable feedstocks going into our production lines. By mass balancing this way (rather than creating dedicated lines for producing bio-based or circular polymers), we’re lowering the environmental impact of our process and ensuring the world gets sustainable polymers in the most cost-efficient way.
We partnered with Chemical Kim, scientist and TikToker, to ask - what is the future of recycling?
Watch as she explains how plastics recycling is changing and how we can give plastics a new life,
again and again.
What is the future of recycling?
Recycling plastics requires less energy than producing new materials and relieves demand for fossil-fuel-based raw materials. It also saves landfill space and reduces environmental pollution.
What’s advanced recycling?
Watch chemistry professor, Chemical Kim, dive into how cutting-edge technologies are being leveraged to give plastics another life.
