Agilyx, Kumho Petrochemical partner on chemical recycling plant in South Korea

Agilyx Corp., a recycler of postuse plastics based in Tigard, Oregon, has announced a collaboration with Kumho Petrochemical, a manufacturer of synthetic rubber in South Korea. The collaboration will explore the development and construction of a chemical recycling facility in South Korea.

“We’re very interested in recycling postuse plastics while focusing on utilizing postuse polystyrene into the pure styrene,” says Jong-Hoon Baek, CEO of Kumho Petrochemical. “Collaboration with Agilyx will give Kumho Petrochemical an opportunity of proposing a new line of eco-solution styrene-butadiene rubber (SSBR) products to most of our customers who prefer sustainable products.”
