-Recycling: Anellotech develops new process technology; APK undertakes chemical recycling of plastic films

US company Anellotech says it is significantly expanding its programme with Plas-TCat, a new process technology aiming to convert a wide range of plastic waste directly into chemicals, which can then be used to make new, virgin plastics.

By leveraging Anellotech’s existing Bio-TCat process, which converts biomass into bio-based chemicals and biofuels, Plas-TCat has demonstrated encouraging results in lab studies using pure plastics.Brexit Carbon Fiber RePolyester

Plas-TCat has the potential to offer a new, cost-effective process that will recycle significant quantities of waste plastics directly into commodity chemicals. Once in the recycling system, waste plastics could be converted into commodity chemicals such as olefins, alkanes and aromatic chemicals, which are identical to their petro-based counterparts which are currently used by manufacturers to make virgin plastics.
