Making Sustainable Change for a Cleaner, Brighter Future

Innovation has made plastic vital to modern life. Medical grade plastic for surgeries. Personal protective equipment for ourselves and our caregivers. Lightweight plastic in our electric cars. Energy saving insulation in our homes.

Today the story of plastic is evolving. Our scientists, engineers, technicians and innovators – America’s Change MakersSM – are making sustainable change to help build a cleaner, brighter future.

Remaking our future

We’re continuing to innovate, investing billions of dollars in next generation advanced recycling. This technology makes it possible for plastic to be made and remade, recycled into high-quality raw materials that are reused to make new products. Again and again. Helping create a more sustainable world for ourselves and generations to come.
