Sabic Wants to Supply Recycled Feedstock

The chemical company Sabic, Sittard, Netherlands, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UK-based Plastic Energy Ltd., London, an expert in chemical plastics recycling, for the supply of feedstock to support Sabic’s petrochemical operations in Europe.

Plastic Energy has commercialised a patented thermochemical conversion technology to convert a wide range of end-of-life, dirty and contaminated plastics, hardly recyclable for conventional processes, into usable feedstock. Plastics are melted in an oxygen free environment and then broken down into synthetic oils at which point the oils need to be refined and upgraded as feedstock for traditional petrochemical uses.

Sabic and Plastic Energy intend to build a first commercial facility in the Netherlands to refine and upgrade the Plastic Energy product Tacoit. This feedstock will be produced from the recycling of low quality, mixed plastic waste otherwise destined for incineration or landfill . The plant is anticipated to enter commercial production in 2021.
