At the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, Sabic announced a new target for the production of its Trucircle portfolio of chemically recycled materials.

At a reception hosted by the company, it said its goal was to reach production of 1 million metric tons of circular materials by the year 2030. Once the commercial advanced recycling unit Sabic is currently constructing  — its first — in Geleen, Netherlands, has been completed, hitting the target will become more feasible.

Commercial delivery of the first circular polymers from the unit is expected in 2023.

As an added boost, Sabic also revealed that it is exploring a new world-scale commercial advanced recycling investment. This new plant would potentially have a capacity of around 200 kilotonnes of circular materials per year.
