Chemicals and plastics

Canada is one of the world’s top chemical and plastics manufacturers and produces a vast array of components. The sector benefits from Canada’s abundance of relatively inexpensive raw materials such as natural gas liquids, oil and minerals, electricity and biomass that are the building blocks needed to manufacture many chemical and plastic every day products. These sectors are adapting to market conditions and are prioritizing effective ways to reduce waste. Through innovation and technology, these industries are transitioning towards a “circular economy” in which materials are reused and recycled in a closed and sustainable loop.
