Ineos Styrolution, GreenMantra to Partner on Advancing Polystyrene Chemical Recycling
This joint development agreement brings together a promising match between the chemical up-cycling technology patented by GreenMantra for plastic waste and the manufacturing expertise of Ineos Styrolution.
Ineos Styrolution and GreenMantra have signed a joint development agreement (JDA), which will align GreenMantra’s patented technology and Ineos Styrolution’s manufacturing infrastructure to convert waste polystyrene into chemical monomer building blocks.
The maturity of each company in its respective area of expertise will expedite the diversion of polystyrene waste from landfills by converting it back into valuable polymers and monomer building blocks; ultimately closing the loop into polystyrene resin, and extending value of this resource. As a part of this partnership, GreenMantra’s secondary product from the polystyrene depolymerization process will be evaluated for use as a raw material by Ineos Styrolution for its polystyrene resin production.
There’s more to TP polyesters than you think. You may know PET, PBT, and PETG—but what about PCT, PCTG, PCTA, and PTT? If you’re not sure what they are, how their properties compare, and who sells them, we have the answers—and lots of new developments to report.
Today, more than ever, granulation is an important step in the total production process.
Alloys of polyethylene and recycled PET were the highlight of the annual SPE Global Plastics Environmental Conference (GPEC) in Detroit in February.
