Advanced Recycling: What It Really Is and How It Could Impact Pennsylvania Residents

February 15, 2023
2:00 pm
- 2:30 pm EST

Join Moms Clean Air Force for a virtual panel discussion about chemical recycling, also known as “advanced recycling.” Chemical “recycling” is, in fact, plastic incineration. Trash that enters chemical “recycling” facilities is not recycled–it is burned, and in the process, toxic pollution is pumped into the air we breathe. During this online conversation, panelists will explain what chemical recycling really is, the associated health consequences, the environmental justice implications, and the potential impact of pending chemical recycling policy. Panelists will also discuss the $1.1 billion dollar facility coming to Point Township, Pennsylvania, and how Pennsylvanians can take action.
