Ineos Looks at Using Plastic Waste In Food Packaging in U.K.

Updated on

Chemicals giant Ineos Group will carry out a trial in the U.K. to recycle plastic into packaging that can be used for chocolate bars, snacks and pet food. 

The company has partnered with Plastic Energy, developer of synthetic oil made from waste plastic, for processing at the Grangemouth refinery outside Edinburgh. The initiative could result in the country’s first plant to use the product, known as pyrolysis oil, for plastics recycling.
