Reliance Industries to use chemical recycling for circular polymers

reciclaje químico

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), the operator of the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemical complex, has become the first Indian company to chemically recycle pyrolysis oil derived from plastic waste into International Sustainability and Carbon Certified Circular Polymers (ISCC-Plus).

In a statement, RIL expressed its commitment to reducing plastic waste and supporting the circular economy in India. The company has shipped its first batch of ISCC-Plus certified Circular Polymers, named CircuRepol (Polypropylene) and CircuRelene (Polyethylene).

Chemical recycling in India

RIL believes that it is leading the way in India towards using this new technology to recycle plastics, converting plastic waste into special circular polymers and thereby generating a positive impact on the environment. RIL’s dedication to sustainability is manifested through innovative methods such as chemical recycling, which contribute to creating a circular economy. circular economy. The company strongly believes in finding smart solutions to reduce plastic waste and inspiring others to join in this journey towards a greener future.

CircuRepol and CircuRelene have been designed to lead circular economy practices, according to RIL. RIL’s Jamnagar refinery became the first refinery to obtain the important ISCC-Plus certification, demonstrating its ability to produce these polymers by recycling. ISCC-Plus certification guarantees that standards and traceability are followed in the production of Circular Polymers.

Notably, RIL has developed a technology that transforms various types of plastic waste, including single-use and multilayer plastics, into pyrolysis oil. The company is collaborating with trusted partners to scale up production of this oil and convert it into circular polymers. Chemical recycling offers numerous benefits, including the conversion of plastic waste into high-quality materials for the manufacture of new plastics.
