Alliance To End Plastic Waste Seeks Recycling Proposals

Feb. 12, 2021
The Alliance to End Plastic Waste calls for project proposals with innovative solutions in chemical recycling technologies to unlock value for hard-to-recycle plastics.

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (the Alliance), an international non-profit organization, launches a request for proposals (RFP) calling for projects related to chemical recycling technologies and business models. The Alliance’s goal is to minimize the volume of plastic waste disposed to landfill or incineration and to maximize the value recovered from recycled plastics in order to contribute to the cost of collection and investment in waste management infrastructure. One way to achieve this is through advanced recycling, or new emerging technologies that enable capturing the value of post-use plastics, according to the organization. It includes recent advancements in technology for sorting waste and for recycling through mechanical or chemical transformation processes.

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste will build on these new technologies, starting with a focus on emerging technologies for chemical recycling. This includes technologies that convert used plastic products back into new plastic, the original building blocks (feedstock) for new pristine quality plastic, or liquid fuels such as heating oils, diesel, waxes and other valuable products.

The RFP supports the acceleration of technologies and business models that recover the economic value of plastic waste, ultimately serving as a solution to significantly increase recycling through chemical conversion technologies.

Proposals can be submitted by all entities and organizations—public or private, for-profit or not-for-profit. The application period runs through April 30, 2021.
