The Closed Loop Foundation is awarding Zzyzx Polymers LLC and Drought Diet Products with approximately $300,000 in grant money to pursue emerging film plastic recycling projects. This effort is part of the foundation’s partnership with S.C. Johnson & Son Inc., which is particularly focused on finding new recycling solutions for its Ziploc brand of plastic bags.
Zzyzx plans to use its share of the money to purchase the equipment needed to scale up its technology for testing in a plastic processing facility, and Drought Diet will use its share to push post-consumer film in making irrigation piping products.
