Cyclyx Welcomes Sealed Air as Newest Member of Consortium
Cyclyx International, a consortium-based supply chain innovation company with a mission to increase the recycling rate of plastic from 10% to 90%, has announced Sealed Air has joined the consortium. Dr. Ron Cotterman, vice president of sustainability innovation and strategy at SEE will be joining the group’s executive advisory board (EAB).
SEE is a leading global provider of packaging solutions that protect essential goods transported worldwide, protect food, and enable supply chains to continue operations with increased resiliency. A critical challenge facing the packaging industry is demonstrating the circularity of materials that are complex and difficult to recycle. SEE is investing in circularity including advanced recycling technologies to collect, sort, and recycle packaging materials. It is also advocating for the infrastructure to enable these technologies.
SEE has pledged to advance or design 100% of its solutions to be recyclable or reusable by 2025 and have those solutions contain on average 50% recycled or renewable content. Details about how SEE is developing and adopting new solutions to ensure a circular economy for plastics are included in its Global Impact Report.
SEE will leverage Cyclyx’s customized takeback programs to increase material recovery and other innovations, allowing for higher amounts of recycled content in its products in the future.
