Senate Public Works Committee Highlights Importance of Polystyrene Recycling

The Woodlands, Texas – Wednesday, September 22, 2021 – Today, the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee held a hearing on recycling and the concept of a circular economy. Ranking Member Capito specifically highlighted the work AmSty and Agilyx are accomplishing at the Regenyx plant in Tigard, Oregon, which she heralded as a real-world example of progress made in polystyrene circular recycling. Click here to watch Sen. Capito's opening remarks for the business meeting.

Regenyx achieves circular recycling for polystyrene by breaking down polystyrene products to their original molecular form. The resulting feedstock is then used to create the exact same products again, with original quality and function. Since start-up, Regenyx has converted approximately two million pounds of used polystyrene to all-new materials. That's equivalent to keeping 70 million foam cups or 60 million takeout containers out of the landfill.
