Polypropylene and Sustainability

What is Polypropylene?

As one of the world’s most popular plastics, polypropylene is a highly versatile material that can be changed slightly to achieve certain properties depending on the application. Think clear plastic container versus the plastic fibers used in your woven outdoor furniture. These additives are readily available and have been proven to be highly effective.  

In addition to being lightweight and durable, polypropylene is one of the least energy-intensive polymers to make and recycle compared to the other polymers in the market.

Is Polypropylene Recyclable?

As a thermoplastic polymer, it is adaptable and used across many different industries and products. Polypropylene is recyclable and reusable, which reduces the impact to landfill, soil pollution, and ocean pollution.

By recycling polypropylene, you can conserve natural resources and energy. For every ton of plastic that is recycled; 5,700 kwh of energy is saved, 16 barrels of oil are not consumed, and 30 cubic yards of landfill space is eliminated.

Recycling efforts of polypropylene are typically easier than other plastics due to the ability to be recycled by both mechanical and chemical processes.

Polypropylene has the ability to be completely circular and meet the needs of a more sustainable future.
