And better yet, we’re doing it with an improved environmental footprint, leaving fossil fuel in the ground and lowering carbon emissions. 

 

In 2019, Eastman began commercial-scale molecular recycling for a broad set of waste plastics that would otherwise be landfilled or incinerated, or worse, end up in the environment. Learn more about our efforts at eastman.eco.
