As part of Trinseo's strategy, we have been developing our proprietary recycling technologies in addition to implementing conventional polymer recycling methods in our commercial products for more than a decade. Furthermore, we acquired a leading collector and recycler of pre- and post-consumer plastic wastes in Europe in January 2022 . Our commitment to innovation and backward integration to secure high-quality sustainable feedstocks positions us as a sustainable solutions provider and enabler for the circular economy for plastics.
