Dow has become the newest company to join consortium-based plastic feedstock management company Cyclyx International, the company has announced.
Cyclyx aims to boost plastic recycling rates by offering a new approach to feedstock management. The company draws on an extensive database of over 1500 post-use plastic chemical characterisations, supported by GE’s proprietary artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive modelling and optimisation tools – to help its members identify the right feedstock for their needs. Moreover, Cyclyx earned ISCC Plus certification in 202, ensuring its compliance with sustainability and traceability requirements along the supply chain.
As a member of Cyclyx, Dow will be able to take part in customised takeback programmess and innovations, including plastic waste-based circular feedstock specifications tailored to its specific product pathways.
Mary-Jane Hogg, global director of waste strategy for Dow, will serve on the executive advisory board of Cyclyx. "Our work with Cyclyx supports Dow’s collaboration on leading technologies to enable a sustainable future with resource-efficient production of certified circular plastics – to preserve the environmental benefits of plastics, including the critical role plastics play in reducing carbon emissions," she said.
Cyclyx was founded by Agilyx Corporation, a leader in advanced chemical recycling, together with ExxonMobil Chemical Company. Cyclyx has been formed to be a consortium-based entity. Membership in the consortium has grown steadily since its founding.
