Reliance Industries pioneers chemical recycling of plastic waste into certified circular polymers
Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first Indian company to engage in the chemical recycling of plastic waste-derived pyrolysis oil, transforming it into International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC)-Plus certified circular polymers. This groundbreaking initiative, showcased through the innovative product line named CircuRepol™ (polypropylene) and CircuRelene™ (polyethylene), reflects RIL’s steadfast commitment to addressing plastic waste challenges and promoting a circular economy in India.

RIL, a diversified conglomerate spanning from oil to telecommunications, recently dispatched its inaugural shipment of ISCC-Plus-certified circular polymers, bearing the names CircuRepol™ and CircuRelene™. This accomplishment aligns seamlessly with RIL’s overarching vision of leveraging technology to revolutionize plastic recycling. By converting various types of plastic waste, including single-use and multi-layered plastics, into pyrolysis oil, RIL is actively collaborating with trusted partners to upscale oil production and translate the output into specialized circular polymers.
Notably, RIL’s Jamnagar refinery has earned the distinction of being the first refinery to secure the crucial ISCC-Plus certification, validating its capability to manufacture circular polymers through chemical recycling. This certification ensures rigorous adherence to traceability and manufacturing protocols, thereby establishing new benchmarks for circular economy practices. Bright-chip rPET
RIL’s breakthrough technology not only contributes positively to environmental conservation but also offers the potential to produce high-quality materials for new plastics, particularly for food-contact packaging.
