Plastic Waste – ExxonMobil – Texas Large-Scale Advanced Recycling Facility to Start Operations by the end of 2022

An ExxonMobil October 11, 2021 news release reports that the company “… believes that advanced recycling is a necessary complement to traditional mechanical recycling to help reduce plastic waste in the environment. The company plans to build its first large-scale plastic waste advanced recycling facility at its Baytown, Texas, complex. Operations are expected to start by the end of 2022. This new facility will be among North America’s largest plastic waste recycling facilities … Advanced recycling effectively transforms plastic waste into the raw materials used in the process of making virgin-quality plastic and other valuable products. Compared to mechanical recycling processes, there are no evident technical limitations to how many times a plastic product can be put through this process …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling #AdvancedRecycling @exxonmobil
