BP to complete pilot plant in US in 2020 to prove the technology




At scale, it may offer potential to divert billions of coloured PET bottles and food trays from landfill and incineration

BP has developed an enhanced recycling technology, BP Infinia, that enables currently unrecyclable polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic waste to be diverted from landfill or incineration and instead transformed back into new, virgin-quality feedstocks.

BP plans to construct a $25 million pilot plant in the US to prove the technology, before progressing to full-scale commercialization.

Tufan Erginbilgic, BP's Downstream chief executive, said: “We see our Infinia technology as a game-changer for the recycling of PET plastics. It is an important stepping stone in enabling a stronger circular economy in the polyester industry and helping to reduce unmanaged plastic waste.”
