PVC is one of the world’s most widely used plastics with a wide range of durable applications such as window frames, pipes, flooring, cables or automotive interior and a number of life-saving medical applications. PVC can be recycled multiple times. VinylPlus® aims to make the entire PVC value chain even more sustainable and further improve the circularity of PVC products.
