Agilyx Corporation based in Tigard, OR is introducing monthly plant tours open to the public. The tours will be offered on the 1st Tuesday of each month, with each group limited to 10 participants. To sign up for a tour, phone Agilyx at 503-217-3160, or email info[.]agilyx.com. Larger groups can call or email to arrange a day and time. Tour participants will be required to wear long trousers or slacks and close-toed shoes for the tour, and may bring waste polystyrene they wish to recycle to the plant when they arrive for the tour.
The Agilyx system is a new commercial chemical recycling technology that returns polystyrene waste to its highest value, and nets up to a 50% reduction of greenhouse gases over traditional styrene manufacturing.
“Introducing public tours just makes sense. We’ve been working with local companies who generate polystyrene waste to build our supply chain, and are transitioning our plastic-to-oil plant to the new styrene process. That, along with increasing public awareness of the solution that Agilyx offers, has led to a real interest in seeing what we are doing.” - Ross M. Patten
Agilyx (agilyx.com) is a privately held alternative energy company, and the first in the world to economically convert difficult-to-recycle waste plastics into crude oil through a process that is environmentally positive. Our proprietary technology produces synthetic crude oil utilizing a small-scale distributed waste management and energy production approach, while generating a carbon impact that is favorable to traditional forms of crude oil extraction. Our systems are available to industrial and municipal waste plastic generators and aggregators who are focused on the highest and best use of resources, while meeting challenging environmental standards to extract the often unused and untapped energy contained within waste plastic.
Agilyx is committed to continuous innovation and lives by the expectation that our technology must improve constantly in order to deliver greater quality and operational efficiencies for our customers, while also striving to ensure improved environmental impact.
