WASHINGTON: The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has announced formation of a new group named ‘Plastics-to-Oil Technologies Alliance’ under its Plastics Division. The new alliance focuses on the comprehensive strategy to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover plastics.
According to Council, the new group will work to increase awareness of the benefits of plastics-to-oil technologies, enhance the industry’s voice through expanded membership and demonstrate broad support for plastics-to-oil technologies through an expanding network of allies.
Founding members of the group include Agilyx Corporation (Beaverton, Oregon), Cynar Plc (London) and RES Polyflow (Akron, Ohio). Membership is open to entities that develop and implement technologies to convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum and petroleum based products. The members of the new group works on transformation of used plastics into energy which in turn could help power millions of American homes, businesses and communities.
ACC is America’s oldest trade association of its kind, representing companies engaged in the business of chemistry.
