Orange County Convention Center (OCCC)
9800 International Drive
Orlando, FL 32819

We create chemistry for a sustainable future is more than just a tagline for us.  Through sustainable innovation and co-creation with our partners along the value chain, we aim to advance plastics in the circular economy.  We want you to join us on this journey and look forward to seeing you at NPE! 

How do we MAKE, USE and RECYCLE the solutions of future?

The MAKE phase is about improving how plastics are made.
In the USE phase, plastics play out all their strengths.
To achieve a circular economy, we need to get much better at the recycling of plastics to close the loop.


The MAKE phase is about improving how plastics are made - from product design to the choice of raw materials and manufacturing process itself. 


In the USE phase, plastics play out all their strengths: by improving energy efficiency through their lightweight, by prolonging product lifecycles thanks to their robustness and peak performance, and by enabling more sustainble applications. 


Finally, the crucial question is what happens to plastics at the end of their life. To achieve a circular economy, we need to get much better at the recycling of plastics to close the loop.
