THE AGILYX DIFFERENCE
Advanced recycling technology to meet the scale and complexity of the challenge
Making valuable resources from end-of-life plastic with a combination of new technologies
At the heart of our technology is an IP-protected reactor where post-use plastic is broken down through the pyrolysis process. Two other proprietary systems play an integral role: feedstock preparation, and plastics management through artificial intelligence models and tools.
A differentiated technology platform for plastic recycling
Two proven recycling technologies, but only one makes plastic circular
Both advanced and mechanical recycling processes are vital to keeping plastic out of the oceans, waterways and environment. Advanced recycling, also known as chemical or molecular recycling, allows a larger variety of plastics to be recycled and converted into high-quality products that can be recycled again and again, without degradation.
Mechanical recycling technology, used for most of today’s plastic recycling, does not fundamentally alter or convert the original plastic material. With each cycle, the plastic is downgraded into lower-quality plastic, which eventually winds up in the landfill or is incinerated.
An efficient thermochemical process without combustion
Our technology uses a form of pyrolysis – heat without the presence of oxygen – to break down polymer chains into smaller molecules and convert them into gasified plastic. This mixture is then cooled into liquid form and processed into high-value, low-carbon products.
Without oxygen, the process does not create the by-products associated with incineration. The end-products are used as feedstocks for new products or in manufacturing processes.
