Ecoplast is the first mechanical recycler of polyolefins in Austria to gain the certification. “We’re pleased to be able to stay ahead of our customers’ demands for high-performance, sustainability-assured circular solutions,” said Chris McArdle, vice president of circular economy solutions and new business development at Borealis.
Ecoplast is a subsidiary of Borealis, since its purchase in 2018. The certification will also help Borealis meet its own circular economy goals. Mechanical recycling at the Ecoplast site is a key component of the company’s circular cascade model, complementing its core business as a PO producer.
Borealis is targeting a six-fold increase in its share of circular products and solutions by 2025.
