This document provides a general overview for how advanced recycling (AR) facilities are typically regulated under federal, state, and local requirements. Most of the requirements are based on the products manufactured. As the U.S. advanced recycling sector continues to mature, most commercially operating AR facilities process a minimum of 50 tons of plastics per day.
