ExxonMobil believes advanced recycling is a necessary complement to mechanical recycling to help reduce plastic waste in the environment. Simply put, advanced recycling can:
- Convert difficult-to-recycle plastics back into virgin quality raw materials that can be used to make new products
- Enable a broader range of plastic products to be recycled
- Increase the number of times a plastic material can be recycled without degrading
ExxonMobil plans to build a large-scale advanced recycling facility at its Baytown, Texas complex, which will be among the largest advanced plastic recycling facilities in North America. ExxonMobil recently made its first shipment of certified circular plastic from Baytown, Texas, where in 2021 we processed almost 4 million pounds of plastic waste that would've otherwise likely ended up in a landfill. That's equivalent of recycling 360 million grocery bags.Learn more about ExxonMobil’s advanced recycling process and plans
At ExxonMobil, we are focusing a significant portion of our industry-leading R&D capabilities on developing performance products that enable reductions in plastic waste, as well as technology options that convert plastic waste to valuable products through advanced recycling.
