Agi­lyx

Cor­po­ra­tion and Ineos Sty­ro­lu­tion have re­cently signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MOU) for de­ploy­ing Agi­lyx’s de-poly­meri­sa­tion tech­nol­ogy at or near to an Ineos Sty­ro­lu­tion fa­cil­ity in North Amer­ica. The aim is to con­vert post-con­sumer poly­styrene waste into styrene monomer that can be used to re-man­u­fac­ture new poly­styrene prod­ucts.

The co­op­er­a­tion ob­jec­tives de­fined in the MOU be­tween both the com­pa­nies are the nat­u­ral next step to set up a chem­i­cal re­cy­cling in­fra­struc­ture and es­tab­lish a cir­cu­lar econ­omy for poly­styrene.

Ineos Sty­ro­lu­tion is com­mit­ted to driv­ing the ad­vance­ment of the de-poly­meri­sa­tion tech­nol­ogy. To­gether with sev­eral re­search in­sti­tu­tions, the com­pany is work­ing on a tech­ni­cal fea­si­bil­ity study and is aim­ing at the devel­op­ment of a holis­tic re­cy­cling con­cept in col­lab­o­ra­tion with waste man­age­ment com­pa­nies. Both com­pa­nies are com­mit­ted to drive the ‘chem­i­cal re­cy­cling’ tech­nol­ogy for­ward, which is based on the de-poly­meri­sa­tion of post-con­sumer poly­styrene waste. This tech­nol­ogy aims at achiev­ing vir­gin, high-qual­ity poly­styrene ul­ti­mately suit­able for food-con­tact ap­pli­ca­tions and med­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions.
