Agilyx Achieves Operating Milestone In Plastic Circularity

July 14, 2021
The company reaches 16,000 commercial operating hours, marking 4,400 tons of plastic waste converted.

Agilyx Corporation says it has surpassed 16,000 hours of commercial operations at its certified chemical recycling operations in Oregon. This was achieved using mixed waste plastic, when the unit was formerly 100% owned by Agilyx, and with polystyrene, which is the current mode of operation in Tigard, Oregon with the unit now forming part of the Regenyx JV with AmSty. Agilyx has reportedly converted over 4,400 tons or 8.9 million pounds of mixed waste plastic and polystyrene waste. Both the mixed waste plastic and the polystyrene waste has been sourced directly by Agilyx utilizing the feedstock management program that has since been incorporated into the Cyclyx Joint Venture.

The operating milestone equates to the weight of around 20 Statues of Liberty being diverted from landfills and oceans, according to the company.

“This is proof-positive that the model for plastic circularity is not only valid but achievable,” says Tim Stedman, chief executive officer of Agilyx. “Ongoing projects with our various partner companies will soon demonstrate that it is also highly scalable which will help us in our commitment to solve the problem of plastic waste.”
