The focus on chemical recycling has intensified in the recent past. Many are looking at it as a solution to our mixed waste streams. But, what is chemical recycling and how does the process differ from recovery and mechanical recycling?

We look at opportunities for chemical recycling to boost recycling rates and enable new materials to be targeted. We also discuss what are the barriers to wider implementation, including costs, perceptions and stakeholder interests. Finally, the panel reflects on where chemical recycling fits into a circular economy and a revised waste hierarchy and its potential use in all geographies and locations.
