Dutch demonstration plant for chemical recycling
UK technology company Itero (London; has announced plans build a “commercial-scale” plant for chemical recycling with its own pyrolysis process in the Dutch chemical park Brightlands Chemelot Campus (Sittard-Geleen; The company said its patented technology is sustainable and converts polyolefins into oils, waxes and gases that can be used to make resins and petrochemical products while reducing emissions associated with the disposal of plastics through landfill and incineration.

The Dutch plant, scheduled to begin operations in 2023, is designed for a processing capacity of 27,000 t/y of mixed and contaminated waste, Itero said. Investment for the project is quoted at EUR 25m, and the company noted that construction of a larger-scale facility in the region is already planned.

“The initial demonstration plant represents a single module recycling facility, which can be scaled up at future plant locations by adding modules.” The company currently runs a UK-based line with a capacity of 1.5 t per day.
