Montreal-based Polystyvert will build a pilot-scale ABS recycling facility as part of a push to adapt its polystyrene technology to other plastics.
The $2.3 million ABS pilot plant will be located at the company’s existing research and development center in east Montreal and will be financially supported by a “renowned global partner,” a press release noted.
Nathalie Morin, Polystyvert president, said the company’s research and development team “has made considerable progress in adapting the technology to a type of plastic that is widely used in numerous applications in our daily lives.”
Polystyvert also announced it will build a commercial scale polystyrene recycling facility in Montreal after successful pilot projects.
