USA: Plastic Recycling

Ineos Partners with Agilyx for Polystyrene Recycling

Agilyx has developed the first system capable of recycling polystyrene (foam cups, packaging materials, and Styrofoam) into styrene monomer, which is then used to remake polystyrene (“PS”).

Agilyx and Ineos Styrolution have signed a joint development agreement to develop a recycling process for polystyrene based on “chemical recycling” in the USA.

Tigard/USA — This collaboration is aimed at achieving a circular economy, where polystyrene waste is recycled into virgin, high-quality styrenic polymers, thereby reducing plastic waste and allowing for re-use of this valuable material.

This “chemical recycling” technology is based on depolymerization of post-consumer polystyrene waste, which is expected to result in new virgin, high-quality polystyrene ultimately for food-related uses.

“The ability of our technology to divert waste polystyrene from landfills and create a sustainable recycled polymer aligns with global efforts of waste diversion and the move to a circular economy”, said Joseph Vaillancourt, CEO, Agilyx Corporation.

According to Ineos, this partnership represents an opportunity to save valuable resources and avoid waste ending in landfills.
