About Us

Nexus Circular is an advanced recycling company at the center of the circular economy. We accelerate plastic recycling so that people, economies and the environment can thrive. We have a viable solution today that is clean, circular and economical at full commercial scale.

MORE EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS DELIVER GREATER IMPACT

Through our end-to-end solution, we work with recycling organizations to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills, everything from rigids to film. By leveraging technology that outperforms, operations that scale and people that deliver, our proprietary technology converts used plastics into high-quality materials for global companies who use them to create circular plastic products.

To date, we have diverted millions of pounds of used plastic from landfills. And we are on a trajectory to convert 1 billion+ lbs. annually of hard-to-recycle plastics into circular materials to support our global partners’ 2025 sustainability commitments.
