Chemical Recycling to Play Important Part in Future of Recycling Markets

The Woodlands, Texas – January 7, 2019 – In an article published recently in the Houston Chronicle, author Andrea Leinfelder discusses the present challenges of the recycling market and future promise of chemical recycling. "One particularly promising alternative [to traditinal recycling] is chemical recycling. This turns plastic back into into its building-block molecules, which can be recombined into new plastics without degrading properties as melting does," she wrote. "The Woodlands company AmSty... is working with Agilyx, an Oregon firm that converts used polystyrene into a liquid form that can be used to make fresh polystyrene products." The full article can be found here. More information about the AmSty Joint Venture with Agilyx can be found here.
