Cyclyx selects U.S. Gulf Coast for advanced plastics-recycling plant

By Mary Page Bailey |

 Cyclyx International LLC., a consortium-based feedstock management company with a mission to increase the recycling rate of plastic from 10% to 90%, has announced it is developing a first-of-its-kind plastic recovery facility to process waste plastics for committed offtake associated with advanced recycling projects on the Gulf Coast, such as the Baytown, Texas project recently announced by ExxonMobil.

Engineering work has already begun on the proposed facility. The facility is expected to process up to 60,000 metric tons of recycled plastic feedstock per year with an anticipated start-up in late 2022. Cyclyx plans to develop a network of similar facilities, linked to committed offtake, to support growth in advanced recycling.

With its unique knowledge of plastic chemical characterizations, Cyclyx is designing the proposed facility to allow for processing of waste plastic feedstock customized to meet the needs of individual customer specifications. Cyclyx will source post-use mixed waste plastic for the project via a range of existing sources while continuing to expand its collaboration with companies from across the value chain to develop circular solutions for difficult-to-recycle plastic waste.

“We are excited to launch this phase of the Company’s growth strategy,” stated Joe Vaillancourt, CEO of Cyclyx. “The development of these customized plastics recovery facilities is critical in meeting the growing needs of advanced recyclers and is a big step forward toward our mission of helping increase the plastic recycling rate from 10% to 90%.”
