Cyclyx to Build Recycling Center for Difficult to Recycle Plastics

13-Dec-23

 The Cyclyx Circularity Centre, in Houston, USA, will have a capacity to produce around 136,000 tonnes of plastic feedstock for chemical and mechanical recycling, with ExxonMobil and LyondellBasell holding offtake rights

The facility will have a capacity to produce around 300 million pounds of plastic feedstock for chemical and mechanical recycling, with ExxonMobil and LyondellBasell holding offtake rights. Together, the two companies are investing $135 million into Cyclyx to fund operating activities and construction costs for the new facility, which is expected to start operations in mid-2025.

Cyclyx draws on a database of over 1500 post-use plastic chemical characterizations to assesses each source of waste plastic to understand its chemical profile. It then uses artificial intelligence and big data to sort those profiles into the various mechanical and chemical recycling pathways that the plastics can be used for. The CCC will focus on sorting and custom blending collected material to ensure feedstock specifications and classifications meet expectations for ExxonMobil and LyondellBasell.

The CCC will accept, analyze, and process mixed plastic waste, including difficult-to-recycle plastics, such as food packaging, chip bags, and bottle caps, sourced from a combination of post-consumer, commercial, and industrial plastic waste.
