Dow joins Cyclyx consortium

U.S. chemical company Dow has joined Cyclyx to recycle previously difficult-to-recycle plastics.


As a member of the Cyclyx recycling consortium, which already includes companies such as LyondellBasell and Ineos Styrolution, Dow says it will use information provided through the platform to recycle plastics, such as those for chemical characterization of polymers, feedstock source modeling to product pathways, specific feedstock formulations and tailored supply chains. Cyclyx, a joint venture, says its goal is to increase plastics recycling rates. To do so, it provides data regarding the chemical composition of each plastic to be recycled, modeled using artificial intelligence and projective analytics. Mary-Jane Hogg, global director of waste strategy at Dow, says: "Our work with Cyclyx supports Dow's collaboration with leading technologies to enable a sustainable future with resource-efficient production of certified recycled plastics - to preserve the environmental benefits of plastics, including the critical role plastics play in reducing carbon emissions."
