It's predicted that by 2050, we'll be producing as much as 12 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. Plastic waste will be converted into pyrolysis oil by thermochemical processing, and then these industrial raw materials will replace fossil resources in the production chain BASF.

The plan is to take the plastic waste that can not be recycled and develop a way to re-use it. ChemCycling transforms the plastic into pyrolysis oil using a thermochemical process. If the results of both pieces of research and development are positive, JLR has said that it will consider using domestically derived recycled plastic content throughout its auto part portfolio.

"Solving this issue requires innovation and joined-up thinking between regulators, manufacturers and suppliers".

The move is said to be aimed at allowing Jaguar Land Rover to reduce its on-going investment in petrol, diesel and hybrid drivelines and instead focus its research and development spending on the electric drivelines in partnership with BMW.

The new showroom offers better customer access and display of both Jaguar and Land Rover's portfolio. The high-quality material, available initially on the Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque, combines a durable wool blend with a technical suedecloth that is made from 53 recycled plastic bottles per vehicle.

According to Autocar's sources, BMW is to supply Jaguar Land Rover with internal combustion engines, including in-line four- and six-cylinder units "both with and without electrically-assisted hybrid functions".

Together, these efforts are driving towards Jaguar Land Rover's vision for Destination Zero; an ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner.
