Kent will provide FEED services for Exxon Mobil’s advanced recycling facilities under assessment in Baytown and Beaumont, Texas; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Joliet, Illinois; Sarnia, Ontario; Rotterdam, Netherlands; and Antwerp, Belgium. Kent designed and installed a trial unit in Baytown in 2021 and 2022. That unit commenced commercial operations in December 2022 and is one of the largest advanced recycling operations in North America.

We are proud to be associated with this project to complete FEED services for ExxonMobil’s advanced recycling projects. The win is a testament to the fantastic work we have been doing in the field of recycling waste. It is a milestone project, and this exciting program will demonstrate how the recycling process is evolving to become more efficient and pave the way to a better future for our planet.

Kent Chief Operating Officer Tush Doshi

By turning hard-to-recycle plastic scrap into raw materials that can be used to make new plastic and other valuable products, ExxonMobil’s recycling technology can divert plastics from landfill or incineration and help meet customer goals for circularity. 

Advancing this portfolio of projects into FEED is an important milestone as we look to expand advanced recycling globally to help achieve a more circular economy.
