Recycle BC, Circular Materials and Éco Enterprises Québec partner to drive Plastic Packaging Recycling Innovation in Canada

Recycle BC, Circular Materials and Éco Enterprises Québec (EEQ) are extending a global invitation for innovators to present plastic packaging sorting and recycling technology solutions to assist in significantly increasing plastic packaging recycling rates in Canada.

To further advance recycling for plastic packaging and increase recycling rates, a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) process issued by Circular Materials, EEQ and Recycle BC, sets out a North American first effort to identify plastics sorting, mechanical and advanced chemical recycling technologies. It formally assesses their environmental and economic performance as the basis of selecting those that will be commercially deployed in plastic recycling supply chains that are currently under development.

The REOI aims to support producers in meeting the ambitious regulatory plastic targets set by provincial and territorial legislation, and to recover plastics for use by producers in new packaging and products.

Proponents with innovative processes capable of addressing various categories of plastic packaging outlined in the REOI are encouraged to respond and participate in this transformative journey.
