We believe advanced recycling is a necessary complement to mechanical recycling to help meet the growing demand for circular products. Simply put, advanced recycling:
- Converts difficult-to-recycle plastics back into virgin quality raw materials that can be used to make new products
- Enables a broader range of plastics to be recycled
As of June 2022, we have processed more than 11 million pounds of plastic waste at our Baytown Complex. We’re expanding to a large-scale advanced recycling facility at the site, which upon completion, will be among the largest advanced plastic recycling facilities in North America.
Beyond Baytown, we plan to expand annual advanced recycling capacity to 1 billion pounds by year-end 2026 across multiple sites globally.Learn more about ExxonMobil’s advanced recycling process and plans
