Together with Mitsubishi Chemical and INPEX to make plastics from green hydrogen and unlock promise of circular economy

Plastics from green hydrogen unlock promise of circular economy – Hycap.
What if manufacturing plastics was carbon negative? Thanks to clean hydrogen that is exactly what could happen.
Abu Dhabi clean energy pioneer Masdar, Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemical Group Corporation and INPEX last week agreed to explore production of the world’s first commercial-scale polypropylene made from carbon dioxide and green hydrogen
Polypropylene is a commonly used plastic used to manufacture items such as bottles, jars and food packaging. Invented in the early 1950s, it is one of the most widely used plastics in the world today. In 2022, 79 million metric tons of polypropylene were produced, a figure that is expected to reach 105 million metric tons by 2030.

      Personally I think we have more than enough plastic and should be recycling and mining what we have. I think we need to step back from plastic altogether instead of finding ways to make more- even if it is sustainable and recyclable...🤔

              This could be a game changer for using CO2 and green hydrogen to produce plastic
