Our process utilizes 4 types of used plastics as pyrolysis feedstocks, addressing 60% of global plastic waste: ♴ HDPE, ♶ LDPE, ♷ PP and ♸ PS.
We work closely with a diverse set of suppliers and recycling organizations to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills, especially films and flexible packaging.
After receiving the used plastic, we manually and automatically sort on-site to remove unwanted materials (paper, metal, glass and other contaminants) and then feed directly to our reactors without additional pre-processing.
Pyrolysis is a proven technology that has been used for over 50 years in the chemicals and plastics industries. Our proprietary technology and leading process design optimizes those established pyrolysis principles to ensure energy efficiency, boost yields and deliver unprecedented product quality.
We utilize only heat without oxygen at atmospheric pressure to break the long chains of the used plastic molecule into shorter chains in the form of gas. This gas is then cooled into its components which is comprised primarily of circular liquid.
The circular liquid is then sold to our offtake partners who use it directly and without additional post-treatment to replace fossil-based sources in their production of new virgin-quality circular plastics.
