Spanish plastics research institute AIMPLAS reported that the LIFE CIRC-ELV Project developed a process for recycling plastic components from vehicles. 

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste is offering a $3 million prize for flexible plastic packaging circular economy solutions. A single winner will be awarded the money in January 2023.

Pomegranate grower and juice brand POM Wonderful is transitioning to 100% RPET bottles and shifting more than 90% of its electricity needs to renewable energy.

PSC Group, which provides services to the petrochemical, refining and marine industries, opened a 200,000-square-foot chemical recycling facility in Baytown, Texas. 

Several plant-based-product brands from the U.S., Canada and U.K. partnered with rePurpose Global to finance the recovery of nature-bound plastic. 

TotalEnergies and New Hope Energy announced an agreement for New Hope Energy to build a new chemical recycling plant in Texas, making feedstock that TotalEnergies will purchase and convert into polymers for use in food-grade packaging. Meanwhile, S&B Engineers and Constructors signed a multi-year master service agreement to expand New Hope‘s existing pyrolysis unit in Tyler, Texas.
