Lummus Green Circle and Chevron Lummus Global to offer integrated circular solutions

Lummus Technology's Green Circle and Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) have announced the integration of multiple technologies from their portfolios for application in the circular economy. The partners will use a combination of the Lummus New Hope Energy plastic pyrolysis technology, CLG's ISOCONVERSION technology and Lummus' steam cracking technology to provide operators the ability to produce steam cracker products in large quantities from hydroprocessed mixed-waste plastic pyrolysis oil.

The combined solution offers major owners and operators the ability to license the entire plastics recycling process.

The Lummus New Hope Energy plastic pyrolysis technology recycles end-of-life plastics into petrochemical feedstock. Through a robust thermal pyrolysis process, the technology produces high-quality pyrolysis oil that is proven, scalable and economic for operators that want to replace or supplement oil-derived feedstocks.

Lummus' steam ethylene cracking technology produces polymer grade ethylene, polymer grade propylene and butadiene. The process is recognized for its performance, including high product yield and energy efficiency, low investment cost and operating reliability. 

CLG's ISOCONVERSION technology uses state-of-the-art hydroprocessing technologies to process biomass and waste plastic pyrolysis oils to renewable fuels or petrochemical feedstocks.

A subsidiary of Lummus, Green Circle is a leader in commercializing and developing breakthrough solutions to address the key pillars of the energy transition, including end-of-life waste plastics recycling, production of bio-derived sustainable chemicals and decarbonization strategies for existing and new assets.
