The new Plastics-to-Oil Technologies Alliance will work to increase awareness of the benefits of plastics-to-oil technologies, enhance the industry’s voice through expanded membership and demonstrate broad support for plastics-to-oil technologies through an expanding network of allies, the Washington-based ACC said in a news release.
The group’s founding members include Agilyx Corp. (Beaverton, Ore.); Cynar PLC (London) and RES Polyflow (Akron, Ohio). Membership is open to organizations that develop and implement technologies to convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum and petroleum-based products.
“Plastics-to-oil technologies are a promising solution for repurposing used plastics that would otherwise end up in a landfill,” said Jon Angin, vice president of business development at Agilyx and chairman of the alliance.
