Dow Inc. 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 more than 1,500 post-use plastic chemical characterizations.
As a member of Cyclyx, Dow will be able to take part in customized takeback programs 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.
