U.S. Department of Energy Announces $27 Million in Plastics Recycling Research and Development

The Department of Energy has allocated $27 million toward plastic recycling research and development.

The C3 Take
  • These projects will look into developing more biodegradable plastics, finding new ways to upcycle existing plastic and tackle challenges in plastic waste.
  • The projects will be conducted by both universities and different research centers.
  • This is a perfect example of private-public partnerships to improve our environment.

“Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced over $27 million in funding for 12 projects that will support the development of advanced plastics recycling technologies and new plastics that are recyclable-by-design. As part of DOE’s Plastics Innovation Challenge, these projects will also help improve existing recycling processes that break plastics into chemical building blocks, which can then be used to make new products.”
