BANGKOK, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SUEZ has entered into a strategic partnership with Chemicals Business, SCG, a key industry player in integrated petrochemical companies in Asia, to address the growing demand for high-quality post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in Southeast Asia. SUEZ produces 30,000 tonnes of PCR from its SUEZ Circular Polymer Plant in Bang Phli, the Group's first outside of Europe, as part of its strategy to provide 100% sustainable solutions that will make a difference for our customers. The plant is currently in trial run and set to open in early December this year.

SUEZ Circular Polymer Plant utilises its strong plastic recycling and research capabilities to produce recycled plastics that are comparable to virgin plastic in colour, impact and resistance. The partnership allows Chemicals Business, SCG to leverage on its solid marketing and business management experience to help distribute the PCR to brand owners and manufacturers in Southeast Asia.

PCR offers a solution to closing the loop on plastic packaging. In fact, recycled plastics cut energy consumption by up to 90% compared to virgin plastic that is derived from oil. As more brand owners in Southeast Asia are pushing to adopt more recyclable materials in their production, the availability of quality PCR will help achieve a plastics economy where plastic never becomes waste or pollution through elimination, innovation and circulation.

Tanawong Areeratchakul, President of Chemicals Business, SCG, said, "SCG's operations have placed considerable importance on creating products and services that align with the circular economy with the aim of becoming the leader in sustainable business in ASEAN. The partnership with SUEZ, a key player in plastic recycling with 9 specialist factories around the world, will accelerate the development of recycled products and minimise the leakage of plastic waste into the environment. This is a good business solution that is conducive to environmental protection."

Antoine Grange, CEO of Recycling & Recovery of SUEZ Asia, said, "SUEZ is delighted to partner with SCG, an industry leader in integrated petrochemicals who shows a consistent commitment to excellence. Together with SCG, we are confident that PCR can deliver a long-term sustainable solution to tackling plastic waste for customers in Southeast Asia. SUEZ will fully support the Thailand government in achieving its plastic waste reduction goal with its technological expertise and compliance excellence."
