Pact Collective looks to molecular recycling with Eastman

With the aim of leveraging its molecular recycling technologies for beauty packaging that cannot be mechanically recycled, Eastman has joined Pact Collective. 

US-based specialty materials company Eastman is now a member of Pact Collective, a non-profit aimed at driving circularity in the beauty industry and improving packaging end of life. Pact and Eastman will work together to use the supplier's molecular recycling technologies to recycle beauty packaging unsuitable for mechanical recycling and which would otherwise be incinerated or go to landfill.

“The recycling challenges for the beauty industry are complex,” Tara Cary, Eastman Cosmetics Packaging Segment Manager, said in a statement. “Pact Collective is positioned to bring participants in the value chain together to achieve real results.”

Pact Collective collects hard-to-recycle beauty packaging through in-store collection and a mail-back program.

“What we like about Eastman’s technology is that it is true material-to-material recycling, not waste-to-fuel or energy,” comments Pact co-founder Mia Davis. “Eastman can help us keep plastic material in circulation, creating more recycled content that can be used in future beauty packaging and other items.”
