Enabling Mechanical Recycling
A revolutionary way to close the loop
REVOLOOP™ exemplifies our efforts around the world to enable mechanical recycling, helping close the loop on plastic waste. Dow’s Materials Science plays a key role in enabling mechanical recycling for plastics: from our design for recycling efforts to our compatibilizers portfolio and the incorporation of high-quality recycled materials into packaging applications. Together, we can build a circular future for plastics.
REVOLOOP™: building a circular future for plastics
Enabling mechanical recycling through Dow’s Materials Science and technologies
Investing in the circular economy
The need for PCR incorporation is growing. REVOLOOP™ allows for technologies, partnerships and developments that support high quality PCR incorporation into our everyday plastics packaging. Dow compatibilizers like RETAIN™ enable materials to be recyclable along with our RecycleReady Technologies and multiple partnerships to accelerate solutions, all help make a circular economy a reality.
Pack Studios helps deliver circular solutions
REVOLOOP™ is the result of Dow’s uncommon Materials Science expertise, further enhanced by the assets and capabilities at our Pack Studios application development centers. Our regional sustainability-focused teams and partners engage with our global Pack Studios locations. Formulation testing, physical and analytical testing, tailored to the needs of our customers and their customers, provide an ability to develop sustainable and reliable solutions for different types of applications, allowing us to design packaging structures that can be mechanically recycled and reincorporated into package without compromising its performance.
Collaborating for Sustainability
It takes all of us to make this revolution a reality. REVOLOOP™ feeds from several partnerships across the world to enhance the local recycling value chains. Dow’s Materials Science expertise and local market knowledge is connected to our partners' experience with waste streams and plastics recycling to collaborate on the best solutions possible for the packaging value chain.
