Again Technologies has become the newest company to join consortium-based plastic feedstock management company Cyclyx.
The Tennessee-based company offers pre-processing, collection, and feedstock consulting to its clients, and has facilitated the recycling of nearly 227,000 tonnes of plastic. As a member of Cyclyx, the supply chain partner will have access to new technologies to help its communities ‘leave no plastic behind’, as per its motto.
"We are thrilled to have Again Technologies join the Cyclyx Consortium,” said Ron Sherga, vice president, membership engagement at Cyclyx. “With our combined experience of nearly half a century; science-based know-how; and practical, real-world application expertise, we can broaden the scope and scalability of our companies’ sustainability. It is clear that Again is well suited to help support Cyclyx’s mission to increase the recyclability of post-use plastics."
Cyclyx draws on over 1500 post-use plastic chemical characterisations to assesses each source of waste plastic to understand its chemical profile. It then uses artificial intelligence and big data to sort those profiles into the various mechanical and chemical recycling pathways that the plastics can be used for. Finally, the company aggregates and pre-processes the products according to costumers’ needs.
The resulting products include recycled polystyrene (PS), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP), and polyethylene (PE). Cyclyx processes are ISSC PLUS certified, ensuring their compliance with sustainability and traceability requirements along the supply chain.
