  • 230 Pages
  • January 2023
  • Region: Global
  • Future Markets, Inc
  • ID: 5720903
Advanced chemical recycling technologies are now being developed by around 130 companies worldwide and capacities are increasing. As well as complementing traditional mechanical recycling, advanced recycling offers benefits such as widening the range of recyclable plastic options, producing high value plastics (e.g. for flexible food packaging) and improving sustainability (using waste rather than fossil fuels for plastics production).

- Overview of the global plastics and bioplastics markets.
- Market drivers and trends.
- Advanced chemical recycling industry developments 2020-2023.
- Capacities by technology. 
- Market maps and value chain. 
- In-depth analysis of advanced chemical recycling technologies. 
- Advanced recycling technologies covered include:

- Pyrolysis
- Gasification
- Dissolution
- Depolymerisation
- Emerging technologies.

- Profiles of 130 companies. Companies profiled include Agilyx, APK AG, Aquafil, Carbios, Eastman, Extracthive, Fych Technologies, Garbo, gr3n SA, Ioniqa, Itero, Licella, Mura Technology, PerPETual, Plastic Energy, Polystyvert, Pyrowave, ReVital Polymers and SABIC.
