Mainstreaming Circularity

Eastman is going circular

It’s not just a buzzword, and it’s more than a goal. Circularity is a platform for innovation. Plastic is a vital material solution – but we need to develop a circular model of use and infinite reuse, and true circularity isn’t easy.

It requires:

  • Developing the infrastructure to collect plastic waste and textiles for use as a feedstock in new materials
  • Launching scalable technologies that can virtually recycle all plastic waste
  • Creating products with that certified recycled content
  • Developing markets for those products

2030 commitments
  • Recycle more than 500 million pounds of plastic waste annually by 2030 via molecular recycling technologies, with a commitment to recycle 250 million pounds annually by 2025.
  • Catalyze improvement of the recycling system by continuing to expand capabilities to recycle more complex products and by participating in initiatives and collaborations to drive increased collection.
