These last months, Eastman announced two recycling innovations.

These are reintroduced to the production of a variety of materials, like plastics and cellulosic products. “Treva will be one of the first Eastman products to benefit from carbon renewal technology, which will further enhance Treva’s beginning-of-life profile,” said Kendra Harrold, marketing director for packaging. Eastman plans to have this product commercially available before the end of 2019.
