Agilyx Begins Delivery of Recycled Styrene Monomer to AmSty
The Woodlands, Texas– March 19, 2019 – An important milestone has been reached to fulfill the previous offtake agreement signed by AmSty and Agilyx. The first commercial truckload of recycled styrene monomer (RSM) was sent to the AmSty facility in St. James, Louisiana.
This is the first step in the PolyUsable™ process of converting used polystyrene products back into their original liquid form, then back into fresh polystyrene products. “We are excited to work with Agilyx, a leading developer of recycling technologies for plastics, as we continue to improve our PolyUsable™ process assuring polystyrene remains a viable and growing component of the circular economy,” said Brad Crocker, President and CEO of AmSty.
