Hydrocarbon Processing Enviro receives order for 500 tons of tire pyrolysis oil from repeat customer Scandinavian Enviro Systems (Enviro) has received an order for deliveries of 500 tons (t) of recovered pyrolysis oil from a leading European oil player. The oil, which will be produced at Enviro’s facility in Åsensbruk, will be delivered during the fall of 2024. A promising new FCC feedstock: Heavy-cut pyrolysis oil from post-consumer plastic waste Plastics are an essential material in modern civilization. Their light weight, durability and property flexibility provide benefits in food preservation, medical applications, building and vehicle energy efficiency, and many other areas. NEXTCHEM (Maire) signs €4-MM grant with the EU to scale up proprietary chemical recycling technology The grant will support the BOOST project, aimed at implementing the first commercial application of NXRe PMMA technology for the chemical recycling on continuous basis of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) scraps into high quality, added value intermediates L’OCCITANE en Provence and CARBIOS present a PET bottle made from enzymatic recycling CARBIOS, L’OCCITANE en Provence and Pinard Beauty Pack join forces to establish an efficient European value chain for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) circularity. Tackle operational challenges with FCC coprocessing applications Refiners are actively developing new solutions to decarbonize their finished products—such as transportation fuels or commodity chemicals—as part of the energy transition. As a result, refiners are now exploring the co-feeding of alternative feedstocks, including renewable and recyclable crude oils, as a means of lowering the carbon footprint of their products. Sustainability and the Energy Transition: The pyrolysis of plastic wastes: A techno-economic analysis Plastics are some of the most vastly used materials in modern life. They are the building block of products manufactured by almost every sector, including packaging, building and construction, textiles, consumer products, transportation, electrical and electronics, and industrial machinery. INEOS Inovyn launches next-generation recycling pilot plants to strengthen Europe’s PVC recycling INEOS Inovyn launches two new PVC pilot plants at our Jemeppe-sur-Sambre site in Belgium, to accelerate technologies for recycling PVC which are not mechanically recyclable today. GCC industry leaders solidify commitment toward plastic circularity Arabian Gulf industry leaders reaffirmed their commitment to adopting a collaborative approach to develop plastic circularity, invest in Design for Recycling (DfR) and address plastic waste at the 13th annual Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) Plastics Conference. Clariant introduces new solutions to reduce the environmental impact of plastics Clariant is launching AddWorks PPA, a perfluoralkyl substances-free polymer processing aid product line, and AddWorks PKG 158, a highly efficient antioxidant solution with outstanding color protection, especially designed for polyolefins containing recycled material Neste successfully concludes its first processing run with pyrolysis oil from discarded tires In its efforts to advance chemical recycling, Neste has successfully conducted its first processing trial run with a new challenging raw material, liquefied discarded tires.
