Introducing Cat-HTR

A unique technology create a circular economy for plastic waste

See how Cat-HTR works



Solving the global problem of end-of-life plastic disposal with our innovative chemical recycling process

ReNew ELP is at the forefront of a new, cutting-edge technology that can convert end-of-life plastic waste into refined synthetic hydrocarbon products, including low carbon synthetic crude oil and valuable petrochemicals.

Around 6% of global oil and gas output is currently used in the production of plastics each year. However, of the 311 million tonnes of plastics manufactured across the globe, only 5% is currently recycled. Much of the remainder ends up in landfill, or polluting the environment after a short first use.

These lost resources are valued at £70 billion per year. But it doesn’t have to be this way…

ReNew ELP will shortly commence construction of the world’s first commercial scale plant at its recently acquired site in Teesside, North East England.

Using a unique, patented hydrothermal upgrading platform, the Cat-HTR (Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor), the plant will convert end-of-life plastic waste into sustainable oils and chemicals, contributing to the establishment of a Circular Economy.
