Additionally, the company will design the facility with production capacity of more than 105 million pounds of ultra-pure recycled polypropylene (UPRP) per year.

Koch Modular president George Schlowsky said: “We are excited to be part of this project, a truly disruptive technology that directly addresses the global plastics issue.”

The two companies have been working together for more than three years for the development of this technology.

Last year, they completed the design and construction of the Phase I Feedstock Evaluation Unit.

As part of the new contract, Koch Modular will supply complete raw-material-in-finished-product-out process system in modularly constructed and controlled indoor environment. The system will be transported through roadway.

The plant is expected to be operational by 2022.

PureCycle CEO Mike Otworth said: “Making polypropylene a valued, recyclable material is particularly relevant during the current health crisis, when it is ever more critical to avoid waste polypropylene washing up on our shores.

“Koch Modular’s guidance, professionalism and end-to-end expertise in innovative technologies scale-ups like this one, plus their modular construction approach, was a critical success factor for our project.”

In May this year, PureCycle Technologies reached an agreement with energy producer and provider Total for plastic recycling.
