Only 10% of plastics are recycled today, and that must change. Cyclyx is a new kind of plastic feedstock management company that works with industry participants to increase plastic recyclability.
Cyclyx operates as a membership consortium, uniting stakeholders around the circular value chains to work together and drive new results in plastic recycling.
By working with partners to source, collect and pre-process large volumes of waste plastic based on exact technical specifications, Cyclyx redirects more plastic into recycling. This new partner-driven model aims to boost plastic circularity – and break the cycle that has kept recycling from reaching its full potential.
3 main steps to source and develop custom post-use plastics
Characterize and qualify plastic waste feeds to meet exact partner specifications, drawing on Agilyx in-depth understanding of the chemical composition of post-use plastics.
Apply proprietary approach to sourcing, aggregating and pre-processing large volumes of post-use plastic.
Deliver custom post-use plastic feedstocks to partner for conversion.
Cyclyx International was launched by Agilyx Corporation in 2020. Building on an extensive database of 1500+ post-use plastic chemical characterizations, Cyclyx uses its know-how – optimized by GE's proprietary artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive modeling and optimization tools – to help partners identify the right feedstock for their needs.
In early 2021, Cyclyx International received ISCC PLUS certification, which ensures a company's compliance with sustainability and traceability requirements along the supply chain.
Only 10% of post-use plastic is recycled
Post-use plastic recycling relies on fragmented, inefficient systems that have kept down recycling rates. Even though the right technology exists, valuable post-use plastics have wound up in landfills and the environment. But with a new approach, that can change.
