GOTHENBURG - Safer chemicals NGO ChemSec has produced a new report - focusing on textiles and plastic packaging - which addresses the importance of developing a circular economy free from substances of concern.

The study, entitled What Goes Around, argues the presence of potentially hazardous chemicals in new materials can prevent them from being safely recycled to achieve circularity.

"We need to recycle more, but have to consider chemical safety alongside increased recycling rates. And the presence of hazardous chemicals in recycled materials prevents the upscaling of circular economy," says a ChemSec statement.
