Unipetrol tests chemical recycling of waste plastics

(ČIA) ORLEN Unipetrol has launched a test pyrolysis unit for the processing of waste plastics at its plant in Litvinov. It will study the chemical recycling of plastics and the way of its implementation in the standard production there. By introducing the principles of the circular economy into production processes, the group wants to expand the production of fuel and plastic products with new resources that will help to decarbonize the Czech Republic and are in line with the policy of the European Union. Tomáš Herink, a member of the board of directors of Unipetrol, said that the ambition was to recycle materials from all over the Czech Republic in a chemical way within few years.
