Biotrend Energy reveals that it will use Honeywell’s UpCycle Process Technology in its future plastics recycling plant in Turkey. 

The factory will convert mixed plastic waste into recycled polymer feedstock (RPF), supporting the circular economy of plastics. 

According to the Environmental Leader, the planned recycling plant will be able to process 30,000 metric tons of mixed plastic waste.

Currently, Biotrend is only able to recover a low percentage of mechanically recycled materials.  There are some types of plastic waste that cannot be recycled mechanically due to certain process limitations caused by contamination, colors, and additives used in plastic production. Currently, the plastics that cannot be mechanically recycled are either converted into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or stored in landfills.

But advanced chemical recycling, such as used in the Honeywell UpCycle technology can process a wider range of plastic materials, which will increase the recovery volume of circular waste. 

This process uses molecular conversion, pyrolysis, and contaminants management technology to convert plastic to RPF. 

Thanks to Honeywell technology, the plant will have the capacity to recycle many types of plastics that would otherwise end up in landfills.
