Can the RMS be used for both chemical and mechanical recycling?

Yes. “Chemical recycling” is a term used to describe a host of different technologies, also known as “advanced recycling technologies” or “feedstock recycling.” The RMS allows for tracking recycled materials from chemical recycling processes using a mass balance approach, supported by chain of custody tracking. This will help supply chain members make credible recycled material claims while using plastics similar to virgin quality. The mass balance approach can also be used by mechanical recyclers.
