Avangard and Honeywell to Build the First U.S. UpCycle Plant to make Virgin-quality RPF

Honeywell will form a joint venture with Avangard Innovative to build its first advanced recycling plant in the United States. The facility will use Honeywell’s recently announced UpCycle Process Technology to transform end-of-life plastic waste into virgin-quality recycled polymer feedstock that can be used to create new plastics.

Honeywell’s new UpCycle Process Technology reduces the need for fossil feeds in the creation of virgin plastics, with the goal of enabling a circular economy for plastics.

Presently, less than 15% of global plastic waste is recyclable within current recycling infrastructures.  Honeywell’s UpCycle Process Technology has the potential to increase the amount of plastic waste that can be recycled to 90% when used in conjunction with other chemical and mechanical recycling processes, and improved plastic collection and sorting.

Avangard collects waste from some of the world’s leading manufacturers located throughout North America as well as material recovery facilities (MRFs) that handle municipal collections. Honeywell and Avangard will co-own and operate a facility within Avangard’s AI Natura Facility in Waller, Texas. The plant will have the capacity to transform 30,000 metric tons of mixed waste plastics into recycled feedstock.
