Crafting a Circular Future with Molecular Recycling

In this presentation, Eastman’s sustainability lead will discuss the global plastic waste crisis we’re all hearing so much about and why that is driving us toward a more circular economy. Our speaker, Christopher Layton, says molecular recycling can be a vital complement to mechanical recycling to tackle the plastic waste challenges we face.

In this session, learn the ins and outs of molecular recycling technologies, what technologies work best for which materials and how Eastman is working to develop more sustainable materials while influencing the broader ecosystem to ensure their long-term adoption.
