In a joint effort, Procter & Gamble (P&G) and DOV have developed a new technology aimed at obtaining high-quality polyethylene (PE) from hard-to-recycle plastic waste. This innovative process combines the companies’ intellectual property in dissolution recycling with their expertise in large-scale manufacturing and materials science.

The collaboration between P&G and DOV focuses on PE, which can be extracted and used in a variety of new applications when separated from other materials. The process involves using solvents to separate the specific polymer from impurities found in complex plastic materials, such as household plastic waste including rigid, flexible and multilayer packaging.

One of the main goals of this partnership is to create a process that generates lower emissions compared to traditional fossil-based PE production or other advanced recycling technologies. By recovering PE from household plastic waste, P&G aims to promote circularity and maximize the use of resources in its new packaging.

Work has already begun on this project and will continue until commercialization is achieved. This collaboration represents an important step forward for P&G in its efforts to reduce its environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable future.
