Chemical recycling of plastic waste
DePoly has developed a low-temperature chemical recycling process for plastics. The solution converts post-consumer and post-industrial PET waste and polyester textiles back into their main raw constituents directly. DePoly’s technology supports the development of a circular economy for plastics while at the same time establishing a sustainable source of chemicals with a reduced carbon footprint. DePoly was spun out of the EPFL in 2020.
