No. Non-commercial collection activities are made possible by the Impac+ funds. Commercial demand for PCR in products is required to incentivize recycling activity. Impac+ promotes the collection of plastic waste that would not have otherwise been collected, in turn helping place that material into the circular economy.
Oceanworks Impac+ is entirely about the removal of the plastic from the environment that would not have been possible without additional incentives (additionality). Carbon and energy Impac+s ONLY come into play when the PCR replaces virgin in a product.
