UK-based recycling technology company Itero will build its first demonstration plant for recycling plastic waste at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands, the company has announced. The plant will use Itero’s patented pyrolysis technology to convert waste plastics into oils, wax and gas that can be used to produce new plastic and petrochemical products.
Founded in 2010 and based in London, Itero has created a leading technology that converts hard-to-recycle plastic waste into a raw material that can be used to produce new plastic products. According to Itero, it ‘is on a mission to help solve the global waste plastic problem. As a complementary process to traditional recycling methods, its process reduces emissions associated with both the disposal of plastics by landfill and incineration, and the production of new plastics from fossil-derived petrochemicals.
