Technical Focus

The SPE Sustainability Division is at the nexus of plastics and sustainability. Our members come from a variety of industries and companies including the following: recycling, reclamation, resource recovery and disposal of plastic materials; bioplastics materials that are biobased, biosourced and/or biodegradable; and life-cycle analysis. The mission of the division is to foster the advancement of technology in the development of plastics as a valuable raw-material resource and a more sustainable alternative to traditional materials. To this end, the division will promote education about sustainable plastics through the coordination and dissemination of technical information. The division will participate in local, regional, national and international sessions and conferences. Visit our community on The Chain and join the discussion.
