Impact assessment Chemical recycling of mixed plastics

In late 2020 / early 2021, Ecoras conducted a (screening) Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for a thermochemical recycling plant that will be built in the near future in the North of the Netherlands.



Objective of the LCA

Within this project, the goal was formulated to map what the main ”impact hotspots” are in the chemical recycling plant and how the impact of the final product scores in comparison to the fossil variant.

In addition, future scenarios were worked out and the effect they have on the total emissions of the demo plant was mapped.
