Dow and P&G collaborate to develop innovative polyethylene recycling technology – Press Release

Procter & Gamble and DOW Collaborate on Groundbreaking Dissolution Recycling Technology for High-Quality Polyethylene from Plastic Waste

Procter & Gamble (P&G) and DOW have joined forces to develop a new process for recovering high-quality polyethylene (PE) from plastic waste that is difficult to recycle. The innovative technology combines the companies’ intellectual property in dissolution recycling, as well as their expertise in large-scale manufacturing and materials science.

The collaboration focuses on PE, which can be extracted and used in various new applications once separated from other materials. Dissolution recycling involves using a solvent to separate a specific polymer from impurities found in complex plastic materials. In this partnership, the focus is on PE, which can be extracted and used in new packaging, promoting circularity and maximizing the use of resources.

One of the main objectives of the partnership is to create a process that generates lower emissions compared to traditional fossil-based PE production or other advanced recycling technologies. The work has already begun and will continue until commercialization is achieved. P&G plans to use the recovered material in new packaging, promoting circularity and maximizing the use of resources.
