Agilyx Corp., which uses chemical recycling to recover used plastics, will open additional offices on the East Coast of the United States and in Northern Europe.
The Tigard, Oregan-based company said final site selections will take place over the next two months for the offices that "will house various corporate and business development functions."
"Our team has worked tirelessly over the past 15 years to turn everyday plastics into a renewable resource, and the current market interest driving the scaling of our capabilities on a global scale is evidence that we are achieving our vision," CEO Joe Vaillancourt said in a statement.
Agilyx uses pyrolysis to recycle used polystyrene, both rigid and expanded, into PS monomer. The company also can return mixed plastics into oil.
The company announced in the summer that it had advanced a project to build a new PS chemical recycling plant in Europe in partnership with Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), a joint industry recycling initiative established in 2018 to increase the circularity of styrenics.
The development is the result of a partnership between SCS members Trinseo and Ineos Styrolution, together with Agilyx.
Employing technology provided by Agilyx the European chemical recycling plant will aim to process up to 50 tonnes of post-consumer polystyrene feedstock each day.
