The test is one of many steps that will help McDonald’s meet its goal of sourcing 100% of its guest packaging from renewable, recycled or certified sources by 2025.

In partnership with McDonald’s, both Pactiv Evergreen and INEOS are part of a team helping to find new and innovative ways to reduce emissions, keep plastic out of nature and preserve natural resources.

McDonald’s and INEOS are using their scale to help transform packaging and waste systems.

Ongoing trials, with one of the world’s largest restaurant companies, presents a significant step forward in developing renewable products, reducing emissions and waste. 

Mike Nagle, CEO INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA said. “We believe the future of packaging materials needs to become more circular wherever possible. Working together with our customers, we can help them to meet their pledges and commitments in this area. To take plastic waste back to virgin plastic is the ultimate definition of recycling and will create a truly circular approach.”
