Chemical recycling 

Companies dedicated to chemical recycling of plastics:

Ambercycle, Inc.

Current methods for disposal and reuse of waste polymer materials are inefficient, low-value, and altogether broken.  Ambercycle believes that breakthrough science and engineering can deliver more efficient reuse of these materials.  The company is developing chemical technology to produce conventional polymers, such as polyesters, from a variety of fibrous waste streams.

BioCellection, Inc.

Even with recycling, 72% of global plastics produced become landfill and pollution. We are on a spaceship that is running out of space for plastic trash. Plastics are valuable resources locked away in hard-to-access carbon structures. BioCellection is unlocking a future where plastics can feed a biological production platform built using genetically programmed bacteria. We are making plastic waste become a concept of the past.
