Collaboration to Realize Future TruStyrenyx Plant

INEOS Styrolution America LLC and Norway-based Agilyx ASA have informed that they are advancing the development of a previously announced 100 tons per day TruStyrenyx chemical recycling facility in Channahon, Illinois.

TruStyrenyx is a partnership between Agilyx and Dutch Technip Energies. The technology provides an all-in-one solution for the chemical recycling of polystyrene back into high-purity styrene monomer, which could be used to make new, food-grade plastic products or packaging. Under the agreement, both companies would collaborate with INEOS Styrolution “and together develop the design and engineering that will serve as the basis for constructing the chemical recycling facility”. The group anticipates the completion of engineering in 2023, which will form the basis for a financial investment decision.,,
