ORLANDO, Fla.­­­ – Koch Modular Process Systems, LLC (Koch Modular), a market leading provider of engineered and fabricated modular reaction and mass transfer systems today announced that they are expanding their ongoing business relationship with PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (“PureCycle”) and will supply the modular recycling systems for their second facility in Augusta, Georgia. This work will help address the global need to transform plastic waste into a renewable resource.

The multi-year master services agreement (MSA) reflects PureCycle’s confidence in Koch Modular’s capabilities and underscores the company’s intent to broaden the scope of work with Koch Modular.  

“Working alongside PureCycle on the Ironton Feedstock Evaluation Unit and multiple commercial-scale projects demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting PureCycle’s disruptive technology,” said Brian Loftus, vice president, Koch Modular Process Systems. “This agreement opens up more possibilities to address the global need for an environmentally responsible plastics lifecycle.”

“As PureCycle continues to grow, there is a clear need to expand our relationship with a partner that fully understands the history of our disruptive technology,” said Dustin Olson, chief operating officer, PureCycle. “Our goal is one billion pounds of like-new, ultra-pure recycled plastic production capacity, and with Koch Modular, I am confident that we will succeed.”

PureCycle and Koch Modular have worked together for more than six years. Most recently Koch was awarded the design and construction of PureCycle’s Phase II commercial ultra-pure recycled (UPR) polypropylene facility located in Ironton, Ohio in 2020. PureCycle’s technology and process removes color, odor, and other contaminants from polypropylene plastic waste, resulting in like-new material that can be recycled time and time again.

The MSA establishes the applicable cost framework, schedule structure, scope of supply, division of responsibility, execution specifications and terms and conditions for future recycling plants.

Under the agreement, Koch Modular will supply the modularly constructed polypropylene recycling systems, starting with PureCycle’s newest facility in Augusta, Georgia. Future projects will include both domestic and international sites.
