In line with our mission to support the growth and sustainable development of the petrochemical and chemical industries in the Arabian Gulf, GPCA aims to create awareness and showcase the opportunities within the Circular Economy to extract greater value from existing molecules and maximize the use of petrochemical and chemical products and applications once they reach the end of their intended purpose.
This report addresses the relationship of plastics with the circular economy concept and helps to understand how plastics can be better integrated into a new produce-reuse-recycle model that minimizes waste generation. It also touches upon the global initiatives launched to achieve a systematic shift towards a new plastic circular economy.
Findings indicate greater need for bridging the gap between education and human behavior towards plastic waste management
