    Sustainable technology company Anellotech is significantly expanding its Plas-TCatTM project


    .


    95% of single-use plastic packaging materials tend to end up in combustion chambers, landfills or pollute the ocean after use, causing a lot of economic and environmental damage


    .

    According to Anellotech, biomass can be converted into bio-based chemicals and biofuels using the company's existing bio-TCATM process


    .


    Plas-TCat has the potential to provide a cost-effective new process for the direct recycling of large quantities of waste plastics into general-purpose chemicals


    .


    The purpose of Anellotech's development of the Plas-TCat process is to achieve large-scale recycling and conversion of waste plastics including composite films


    .


    Currently, Anellotech has expanded its development program, which is expected to last several years


    .

    "Plas-TCat has the potential to directly convert waste plastics (such as composite films, mixed plastics and plastics with biomass, such as paper labels) into valuable chemicals


    .


    “Because of the potential of Plas-TCat technology to produce high-value products on a large scale, we prefer to use Plas-TCat in regions where waste plastic recycling is not yet enforced and where there is currently a lack of collection infrastructure to segregate waste plastic streams


    .


    Anellotech is a sustainable technology company focused on commercializing innovative cost-competitive renewable chemicals and non-food biomass fuels
    .

    Founded in 2008, Anellotech has raised $85 million in cash and in-kind contributions from strategic partners
    .
    The company's patented Bio-TCat™ technology is a highly effective thermocatalytic process that converts biomass into mixed aromatics such as a mixture of benzene, toluene and xylenes, which have the same chemical properties as petroleum-based aromatics

    .

    High-purity benzene, toluene, and xylene are used to make general-purpose polymers such as polyester (polyethylene terephthalate, or "PET"), polystyrene, polycarbonate, nylon, and polyurethane, which are used to make Plastic consumer products such as beverage bottles, food packaging, clothing, footwear, carpets, automotive and electronic components,
    etc.
