Agilyx and TechnipFMC to enable new pathways for post-use polystyrene

The collaboration between Agilyx and TechnipFMC, will leverage the expertise of each company enabling a new production path of styrene via post-use polystyrene products.  The developed purification process will bolt on to Agilyx's existing depolymerization technology and will accelerate the presence of recycled styrene and recycled polystyrene in the market. While manufactured from post-use polystyrene, the recycled styrene is expected to retain all of the properties and functionality of traditionally manufactured styrene.

This collaboration with Agilyx fully aligns with a strategic objective of TechnipFMC and it's Technip Energies segment to bring sustainable process technologies to the market place by developing circular economy technology for a major plastic used widely throughout the world.

Stan Knez, President, TechnipFMC Process Technology

Polystyrene is commonly used in consumer product applications and for commercial packaging. It is a versatile plastic that can be used in a solid form or foamed.

We view this collaboration as an important step to meet the increasing demand for recycled content in plastic products. Demand for recycled content is increasing globally driven by legislation as well as sustainability goals by major brand owners.

Joe Vaillancourt, CEO, Agilyx
