This methodology is globally applicable to project activities that include the manufacture and sale of plastic substitutes that displace those made by conventional, petroleum-based plastics. These substitutes are made entirely or partially from alternative materials, such as calcium carbonate or seaweed, which require less fossil fuel to produce compared to conventional plastics. Alternative materials may be blended with conventional plastic polymers to produce a substitute that has the same uses and quality as conventional plastic. Alternative materials may also be used to make products that completely displace the use of conventional plastics.
