Feedstock Recycling And Pyrolysis Of Waste Plas...

MIDLAND, Mich., Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Dow (NYSE: DOW) today announced several advancements in its efforts to prevent plastic waste, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide customers with recycled plastic products that provide the same performance as virgin plastics derived from fossil fuel-based feedstocks.

NOVA, in partnership with Enerkem, now plans to begin construction of a pilot-scale reactor. Intended to address hard-to-recycle plastics, the reactor will use pyrolysis to convert discarded plastic to feedstocks for new plastic production.

While circular products, such as waste plastic pyrolysis oil, are in high demand by large petrochemical companies hoping to expand their sustainability footprint, sourcing adequate volumes of waste plastic feedstock for chemical recycling operations continues to be a concern for many in the industry.

With several large facilities starting up in the coming years, access to quality feedstocks that meet cost criteria will become increasingly difficult, as US plastic waste collection infrastructure has yet to see significant improvement.

This comes shortly after the December announcement that Freepoint Eco-Systems has broken ground on their Hebron, Ohio pyrolysis facility, which is intended to process 90,000 tonnes/year of mixed plastic waste. The facility, originally expected to be operational in 2023, is now slated for start-up by the first half of 2024.

In an advanced recycling first, Anellotech has continuously processed solid, post-consumer plastic waste into light olefins and aromatics using its Plas-TCat catalytic pyrolysis technology. The waste consisted of a mixture of all major plastic types with the exception of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

This project ushers in collaboration between Honeywell and Biotrend Energy on advanced plastics recycling in Turkey with the intent of the parties to collaborate on multiple, additional waste plastic recycling facilities in the future.

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Oct. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- LyondellBasell and 23 Oaks Investments, Leiferde/Lower Saxony, Germany, signed an agreement to create Source One Plastics, a joint venture that will build an energy efficient, advanced plastic waste sorting and recycling facility in Germany. Using renewable energy from wind and biomass, the new unit is designed to process the amount of plastic packaging waste generated by approximately 1.3 million German citizens per year. This waste is not recycled today and is mostly incinerated.

The Source One Plastics facility will produce processed waste that will provide a material part of the feedstock for an advanced recycling plant that LyondellBasell plans to build at its Wesseling, Germany, site. Using LyondellBasell's proprietary MoReTec technology, this plant will be the first commercial scale, single-train advanced recycling plant, designed to demonstrate its capability for further scalability. LyondellBasell already operates a semi-industrial scale MoReTec plant at its Ferrara, Italy, site.

LyondellBasell's new plant is designed to convert hard-to-recycle post-consumer plastic waste into feedstock for new plastic materials. Once in operation, it will enable recycling of most types of plastic materials such as multi-layered food packaging items or mixed plastic containers. The final investment decision on this project is scheduled for the coming months. Both projects contribute to LyondellBasell's sustainability ambition to end plastic waste in the environment.

"We are committed to supporting our customers to meet their demand for renewable and circular solutions," says Yvonne van der Laan, LyondellBasell Executive Vice President, Circular and Low Carbon Solutions. "To truly achieve a circular economy, we have to find creative solutions to meet society's needs. We are taking an important first step into the upstream side of the business to secure access to plastic waste that we will convert into n
