Post-Consumer Resin Offerings

Accelerating the Circular Economy with High-Quality, Proven PCR

PCR News Updates

Plastics have no place in our oceans, waterways or natural lands. We stand at a pivotal moment, as the industry moves from a linear to a circular plastics economy and collaborates to eliminate plastic pollution across the globe.

In the next five years, the demand for post-consumer resin (PCR) is expected to increase five- to tenfold. NOVA Chemicals is actively pursuing the opportunity to offer our customers a suite of PCR-containing resins for a range of rigid and flexible application needs. Our planned PCR portfolio will include HDPE FDA-NOL, HDPE and (L)LDPE.

Why buy from us?

  • Purchasing virgin and recycled resins from a single supplier offers a simplified “one-stop-shop” purchasing experience.
  • We have extensive technical expertise around things like which type of recyclate is best for a given application, how to incorporate recyclate into flexible films and rigid packaging and goods, loading levels, and much more.
  • Buying from a trusted supplier who is known by its customers and the broader marketplace as a collaborator, problem solver, and solution provider offers peace of mind.

Contact us today and let’s talk about how we can help your organization meet its sustainability goals and advance the circular economy with PCR.
