ReNew ELP is at the forefront of a new, cutting-edge technology that can convert end-of-life plastic waste into hydrocarbon feedstocks that can be further processed into new plastic production or other valuable petrochemicals. Chemically recycling the hydrocarbons from a waste stream to a saleable feedstock.
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 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 that is unsuitable for mechanical recycling into a hydrocarbon feedstock, bringing end-of-life plastic waste into the Circular Economy.
