PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire , August 26, 2022 (press release) –

Cyclyx International, a consortium-based post-use plastic innovation company with a mission to increase the recyclability of plastic from 10% to 90%, has announced the opening of a new plastics testing laboratory location in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which will serve as an important asset to Cyclyx as it continues to grow and develop its recently announced high volume plastic processing facility in support of its consortium member partners.

The new lab will allow Cyclyx to test and qualify significantly greater quantities and a broader range of qualities of waste plastic. These testing protocols are necessary for gaining ISCC PLUS certification for the various sources of waste plastic but also informs how these plastics are sourced and processed for a wide range of mechanical and advanced recycling applications. The lab and growing database of waste plastics will allow Cyclyx to target plastic too distressed to be successfully recycled and include them in custom blends that will meet customers’ specifications. By qualifying and including more waste plastics in feedstock for its members, Cyclyx will be able to maximize availability and lower the cost of its waste plastic feedstock used for either mechanical or advanced recycling applications.

“The Portsmouth lab will be a vital asset to Cyclyx as we ramp up our production of waste plastic feedstock,” stated Joe Vaillancourt, CEO of Cyclyx. “The more sources of waste plastic that we can identify and qualify for use in our processes, the bigger impact we can have on the recyclability of all waste plastics, and the closer we can come to our mission to help increase that number from 10% to 90%.”
