Eastman announced the company's plans to build one of the world's largest plastic-to-plastic molecular recycling facilities at its Kingsport, Tenn site. Through methanolysis, this world-scale facility will convert polyester waste that often ends up in landfills and waterways into durable products, creating an optimized circular economy. Over the next 2 years, the company will invest approximately $250 million in the facility, which will support Eastman's commitment to addressing the global waste crisis and to mitigating challenges created by climate change, while also creating value for its stakeholders. Using the company's polyester renewal technology, the new facility will use over 100k metric tons of plastic waste that cannot be recycled by current mechanical methods to produce premium, high-quality specialty plastics made with recycled content. This process of using plastic waste as the main feedstock is a true material-to-material solution and reduces the company's use of fossil feedstocks and reduces its greenhouse gas emissions by 20-30 percent relative to fossil feedstocks.
