PureCycle Technologies, which has already pre-sold 20 years of output from its Ohio factory, is now finalising plans to establish a polypropylene (PP) recycling facility in South Korea in collaboration with SK Global Chemical.
PureCycle recycles waste PP into ultra-pure polypropylene resin (UPRP) for use in absorbent hygiene and other consumer items, automotive, building and construction, and industrial applications.
PureCycle has announced a partnership with SK Global Chemical, the leading recycling waste company in South Korea. The agreement will lead to the development of solvent-based recycling operations in Asia Pacific and add to the facility locations already growing across the United States. Construction of PureCycle’s flagship recycling facility in Ironton, Ohio is well underway and expected to begin commercial production in the fourth quarter of 2022. In July the company announced the location for the first cluster facility in Augusta, Georgia, which will create over 80 manufacturing jobs.
