Ravago has acquired an equity interest in Alterra Energy. Ravago will be a strategic partner in supplying pre-processed waste plastic to Alterra Energy's Akron, Ohio, facility -- which currently has the capacity to liquefy up to 60 tons per day of waste plastic for use as a feedstock for the manufacturing of plastics and chemicals -- as well as for future commercial installations.
Alterra Energy and Ravago plan to combine forces to provide integrated recycling solutions that support the transition toward decarbonization, decreasing virgin fossil resource dependency and increasing circularity for its petrochemical and chemical partners.
Alterra Energy, which has developed and commercialized a continuous advanced recycling technology that transforms end-of-life plastics into petrochemical feedstock, will process the Ravago-supplied waste plastic into ISCC PLUS certified material. Alterra will then market this material for further refining and conversion into circular building blocks for the plastics and chemicals producing industry.
