Washington, United States -- The American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Plastics Division has formed a new group to enhance public policy to support technologies to convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum-based products.
The Plastics-to-Oil Technologies Alliance aims to build awareness of plastics-to-oil technology benefits, enhance the industry’s voice through expanded membership and demonstrate broad support for plastics-to-oil technologies.
The groups chairman Jon Angin, also vice president of business development at Agilyx Corporation, said technologies becoming available now are “poised to take advantage of an abundant, domestic alternative energy source while helping to reduce waste.”
He added: “Plastics-to-oil technologies are a promising solution for re-purposing used plastics that would otherwise end up in a landfill."
Oregon-based Agilyx Corporation, London’s Cynar and RES Polyflow in Ohio are among the founding members. Any company developing and implementing technology to convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum and petroleum-based products is eligible to for membership.
