GlyEco completes significant capacity expansion for recycled glycol
Mary Page Bailey
Sustainable glycol technologies company GlyEco, Inc. (Phoenix, Ariz.; www.glyeco.com) has completed significant upgrades at its New Jersey glycol processing center to meet higher than anticipated customer demand for its refinery-grade recycled glycol, which it began producing at the facility in the fall of 2013.
Production capacity at the New Jersey processing center has increased 500% to 5 million gallons, enabling the company to implement its patent-pending glycol recycling technology on a large scale. Waste glycols treated at this processing center are recycled into glycols that meet rigorous ASTM E1177 standards.
Further improvements are scheduled through the end of 2014, boosting production capacity to 12-15 million gallons. The company intends to complete production enhancements as it extends its service offering into new markets and finalizes several strategic feedstock agreements.
