Accelerating The Circular Plastics Economy

Plastic Energy is transforming the global landscape of plastic waste. Our recycling process converts end-of-life plastic into feedstock used to replace fossil oils in the production of new plastics, while diverting plastic waste from landfill and incineration.

The Plastic Problem

Icon for 1.8B


1.8 billion tonnes of GHG emissions generated by plastics lifecycle.

Icon for 390M+


Every year more than 390 million tonnes of plastic are produced globally.

Icon for 22M+


More than 22 million tonnes of plastic waste leak into the environment and oceans yearly.

Icon for 9%


Globally, only 9% of plastic waste is recycled, 50% is landfilled, 22% is mismanaged and 19% incinerated.

Our Technology & Process

With our patented process, plastics are heated in the absence of oxygen to form hydrocarbon vapours. These vapours are then condensed into our recycled feedstock – TACOIL™.


Closing The Plastic Loop

By recycling previously unrecyclable plastic waste, we are helping create a circular economy for plastics.

Closing the plastic loop would dramatically reduce environmental pollution and promote far-reaching societal benefits.
