“Applying the cradle-to-resin emissions estimate of 1.89 tons CO2e/ton of plastic resin produced, plastic production could emit 1.26 Gt CO2e per year by 2030. Even assuming the current expansion slows after 2030, annual emissions from plastic production could rise to 2.5 Gt by 2050.”Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL), Plastic & Climate: The hidden costs of a plastic planet (May 2019)
HYPPOS reduces GHG emissions of
63,000,000 tons of CO2e per year
Cars driven for 1 year
Through waste reduction, plastics manufacturers can achieve savings of up to €25 million per plant, per year, due to improved efficiency in the production process, coupled with current & future compliance costs to the EU-ETS.
