Washington, DC – The American Chemistry Council has given Demilec, which makes rigid polyols, an award for recycling.
The Innovation in Plastics Recycling Awards for 2015 went to Demilec because its process removes waste from the waste stream and the polyols it produces can be used in energy saving rigid spray foam.
According to the ACC, Arlington, Texas-based Demilec converts polyethylene terephthalate (PET) scrap into polyols, which can be used in its spray foam insulation products. The company has recycled more than 300 m plastic bottles into spray foam insulation products in recent years and expects to recycle more than 35 million plastic bottles into high-performing spray foam
"We are thrilled to recognise this year’s award recipients,” said Steve Russell, vice president of plastics for the American Chemistry Council. “Each of these organisations is a leader in recycling innovation, and their contributions will likely inspire ongoing contributions to the rapidly growing field of plastics recycling.”
