A new consortium business model aimed at increasing recycling of post-use plastic
innovating for a sustainable future
Only 10% of post-use plastic is recycled
Cyclyx brings much-needed innovation to feedstock management, which has been a limiting factor in the recycling industry. Our integrated approach combines Agilyx technical expertise with leading-edge technology, data analytics and predictive modeling to help drive up plastic recycling rates all over the world.
Low recycling rates are due in part to the chemical complexity and variety of post-use plastics, as well as the stringent requirements for new plastic materials. More fundamentally, today’s infrastructure is not designed for the circular economy. As a result, only 10% of all post-use plastic gets recycled – far below the potential.
THE CYCLYX MISSION
Increase recycling rates of plastic from 10% to 90%
Post-use plastic recycling relies on fragmented, inefficient systems that have kept down recycling rates. Even though the right technology exists, valuable post-use plastics have wound up in landfills and the environment. But with a new approach, that can change.
The power of Agilyx expertise and GE technology
Cyclyx International was launched by Agilyx Corporation in 2020. Building on an extensive database of 1500+ post-use plastic chemical characterizations, Cyclyx uses its know-how – optimized by GE’s proprietary artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive modeling and optimization tools – to help partners identify the right feedstock for their needs.
In early 2021, Cyclyx International received ISCC PLUS certification, which ensures a company’s compliance with sustainability and traceability requirements along the supply chain.
