Rethinking Plastics in a Circular Economy

Interviewee: Michael Norton, EASAC Environment Programme Director (among others).

In this report, Economist Impact examines the distinguishing characteristics of a range of plastic recycling technologies and presents the results of an in-depth assessment informed by an advisory board and desk research. The report further explores the policy framework necessary to implement and scale up these emerging technologies.
The findings are based on an extensive literature review, an advisory board meeting and an expert interview programme conducted by Economist Impact between April and August 2021.

Economist Impact combines the rigour of a think-tank with the creativity of a media brand to engage a globally influential audience. We believe that evidence-based insights can open debate, broaden perspectives and catalyse progress.
