Suez boosts circular economy with new polymer joint partnership

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Suez has established a joint venture with chemicals and plastics company LyondellBasell to manufacture secondary polymers on a large scale.

Claiming to be an industry first, the partnership will take a 50% stake in QCP, which is based at Sittard-Geleen in the Netherlands.

The facility currently converts consumer waste into 25,000 tons of polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) every year.

LyondellBasell will market QCP materials and Suez will be responsible in feeding of the plant with post-consumer plastic waste.

Jean-Marc Boursier, who is in charge of recycling & recovery in Europe at Suez, said: “This partnership represents a new step in Suez plastics strategy in Europe, and it will help to reach our objective to process 600,000 tons of plastic waste in 2020.”

QCP has produced high-quality raw materials for the plastics industry since 2014.
