The Malaysian plastics recycling major Heng Hiap Industries Sdn Bhd (HHI) has been collaborating with SABIC to create certified circular polymers produced through the advanced recycling of ocean-bound plastics. The collaboration has not only upscaled the production of more sustainable materials, but also helped in safeguarding the oceans and waterways from plastic waste, which in turn poses danger to human and marine life.
