The Kingsport facility is one of the largest molecular recycling facilities in the world, capable of recycling 110,000 metric tons every year. By scaling up this technology, we are making a big impact in reducing plastic waste and lowering carbon emissions compared to traditional fossil-based processes.

By closing the loop on plastic recycling, we are contributing to a truly circular economy. This means that the plastic products we produce can be recycled an infinite number of times, minimizing waste and conserving valuable resources.

Eastman is proud to lead the transformative movement towards a more sustainable future. Through innovative recycling technologies, we change the world, promoting a circular economy. This commitment benefits the environment and ensures widespread availability of our products, positively impacting industries and consumers globally.

Join us in embracing the power of recycling and together, let's make a difference in the world.
