To achieve this, we consider a holistic approach, taking into account the impacts of our entire value chain: from R&D, resource-efficient production, prevention of waste leakage, through to waste collection, sorting and reuse, recycling or recovery of our products.

We have a proven track record in innovation and R&D and we are using this expertise to contribute to circularity. We continue to strive for resource-efficient operations and are continuously reducing our energy use as well as our emissions. We participate in the stewardship programme Operation Clean Sweep® and embed good practices for the containment of pellets in our day-to-day practices and management systems at all our production sites, and encourage logistics suppliers to also adopt these good practices.

Circular economy for styrenics (Graphic: INEOS Styrolution Group GmbH)

We have embarked on several projects focused on chemical recycling of plastics by collaborating with not only styrenics manufacturers but also the entire value chain. We have joined forces in a collaborative industry initiative with PlasticsEurope to support waste collection, sorting and technology development. We are also part of the joint European initiative of the styrenics industry called Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS) to increase the circularity of polystyrene. We believe the synergies of these technologies will help in speeding up the implementation and shorten the time to market.

By offering styrenics solutions that deliver strong, sustainable performance, we will ensure that our customers’ businesses and end consumers’ choices become more sustainable.
