Nova Chemical and Charter Next Generation Collaborate on Post-Consumer Resins
November 02, 2021

NOVA Chemicals Corporation and Specialty film producer Charter Next Generation (CNG) announced this week they have collaborated to increase sustainable film supply for packaging with the arrival of post-consumer resin (PCR) in railcar quantities at CNG's manufacturing facilities in October. The collaboration is also in line with both companies' initiatives to advance a circular economy where plastic materials are recycled to be used repeatedly.

NOVA Chemicals also said its Polyethylene PCR (PE-PCR) business is expanding to support customer demand for recyclable film structures with recycled content to meet converter, brand owner and retailer sustainability goals.

CNG's purchase of PCR was for recycled Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (rLLDPE) that will be used in films sold as part of its GreenArrow platform. Through the GreenArrow platform, companies can use PCR and convert multi-material, unrecyclable packaging into recyclable formats approved for store drop-off in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.
