Sustainability

How Does Plastic Energy Support sustainability?

REDUCE POLLUTION

Improving waste management by diverting plastics away from landfills and incineration, and preventing leaks into the ocean

INCREASE RECYCLING

Supporting countries in reaching plastic waste targets by recycling previously non-recyclable plastics.

HIGH QUALITY RECYCLED CONTENT

Increasing availability of virgin-quality recycled plastic suitable for food-grade products.

MOVE TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Closing the plastic loop by using end-of-life material to create new plastics, instead of natural resources.

Our Certifications

ISO - International Organisation for Standardisation

PLASTIC ENERGY has been accredited ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management) certifications. These internationally recognised standards ensure our products and services clearly meet the needs of customers through effective quality management systems and environmental management.

ISCC PLUS

We are proud to operate the world’s first waste plastic conversion facility with ISCC PLUS certification. The production line certified according to the ISCC PLUS Standard recycles plastic waste into a valuable product, contributing to reduced virgin feedstock consumption. This is verified and confirmed by a third party.

RSB

We are pleased to have become the first end-of-life plastics chemical recycler to achieve certification for one of the world’s most robust sustainability standards for the circular and bio-based economy. Our recycling facility in Sevilla, Spain now carries a Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) certification, demonstrating its important role in the circular economy by transforming end-of-life plastics into recycled oils that can be used to make virgin-quality plastics, thus reducing the need for fossil resources.

Our Commitments

By 2025, PLASTIC ENERGY will convert at least 300,000 tonnes of low-value plastic waste into feedstock for new plastic manufacturing (Plastic2Plastic).

PLASTIC ENERGY
Partnership With WWF
Indonesia

We committed to divert at least 100,000 tonnes of end-of-life plastic waste annually away from Indonesia’s landfills and our oceans from 2025.

Plastic Energy - Life Cycle Assessment (LCA Study)

We have conducted a Life Cycle Assessment to better understand the environmental impact of our chemical recycling approach on circularity, climate change, water, resources and ecosystems quality. A summary of the results are available below.
