Extracting more recyclables from the waste stream, the relevant ratios of recycled content, and the merits of chemical recycling were key topics covered by Kosior as he made his message clear: a focus on CO2 should drive all future decisions related to plastics and recycling.

Speaking at the Australian-New Zealand Chapter of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) event – ‘Plastics and the Circular Economy – The Virtual Edition 2021’,  Kosior opened his session by outlining the importance of cutting greenhouse gas emission levels and annual flows of plastic into the oceans, and emphasised future challenges faced as oil companies focus on creating more plastic as demand for oil-based fuel wanes.
