During the recycling process, the plastic waste transforms into the same durable, safe material that provides the same performance as original Tritan, according to the company.
CEO of Eastman Mark Costa said, “Tritan Renew is a significant step forward for Eastman as the first product to market using molecular recycling made possible by Eastman’s Advanced Circular Recycling technologies. We have made considerable progress over the past year to create sustainable solutions that convert millions of pounds of waste into new materials.”
