The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has formed a new group within its plastics division that will work to enhance public policy in support of technologies that convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum based products.

The new plastics-to-oil technologies alliance 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, according to ACC.

Founding members of the group include Agilyx Corp., Cynar Plc, and RES Polyflow. Membership is open to entities that develop and implement technologies to convert non-recycled plastics into petroleum and petroleum based products.

“Plastics-to-oil technologies are a promising solution for repurposing used plastics that would otherwise end up in a landfill,” said Jon Angin, vice president of business development at Agilyx Corporation and chairman of the Plastics-to-Oil Technologies Alliance. “The technologies becoming available now are poised to take advantage of an abundant, domestic alternative energy source, while helping to reduce waste.”
