Circular plastics

To combat the depletion of the Earth’s resources and climate change, it’s essential to reduce plastic waste. We make it possible to ensure that the plastics we use are circular. TNO develops scenario models to guide the transition to a circular economy. Together with our partners, we work on new production and recycling technologie
