Ampacet has joined The Alliance to End Plastic Waste, a global not-for-profit with a bold vision to end plastic waste in the environment. A total of 47 member companies from across the value chain have committed over US$1 billion to develop, deploy and bring to scale solutions that will minimize and manage plastic waste to help end the global crisis of plastic waste.
Members of The Alliance to End Plastic Waste use their considerable resources, which include technical, materials, logistics and engineering expertise to collaborate on ways to stop the flow of plastic waste and promote solutions for used plastics, including reuse, recover and recycling plastic. Members promote infrastructure development, education and engagement, innovation and clean up efforts.
“Taking care of our planet is no longer a choice, but a responsibility that we embrace. We use fewer natural resources while we create higher performance and more sustainable products, solutions and services for our customers,” says Alvaro Mendoza, CEO and President of Ampacet. “We partner with customers and suppliers in simple and efficient ways, allowing them to imagine and develop products that improve the quality of life.”
Ampacet’s Director of Sustainability, Doreen Becker, will be working with The Alliance to End Plastic Waste on promoting recycling and reuse of plastics in the manufacturing cycle. “We welcome the opportunity to partner with Alliance member companies across the supply chain,” she said. “We’re focused on development of a number of innovative and cost-effective solutions, including additives that enable use of reclaimed material and provide an alternate end-of-life to landfill disposal.”
