Since the inception of the Recycling Committee at the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), efforts to promote the recycling of plastic products have been supported by focusing on development of demand for recycled materials.  As the association that represents the consumers of plastics, through the Processor and Brand Owner councils, PLASTICS is uniquely positioned to convene cross-supply chain workgroups to meaningfully identify new opportunities for use of recycled plastics through demonstration projects.

A demonstration project typically consists of material collection, processing, and testing while documenting processes and best practices for each stage in the project. The methodologies and final test results are published in a technology package compiled by PLASTICS.
