KBR has received a contract from GS Caltex for a planned plastic recycling project in South Korea.
Based on KBR and Mura’s Hydro-PRT process, the 50 kTA unit converts waste plastics into raw materials for conversion into new plastics.
Doug Kelly, KBR’s President of Technology, said: “Hydro-PRT can play a pivotal role in his KBR efforts supporting his ESG goals for clients through our sustainability platform.”
Dr. Steve Mahon, CEO of Mura Technology, said: Our differentiated, proven and scalable Hydro-PRT process is designed to help companies achieve his ESG goals and we are pleased to be working with the team at GS Caltex to achieve the same. “
“Deploying KBR’s plastic recycling technology, offered in partnership with Mura, is one of GS Caltex’s key elements in reaching our circular goals. By doing so, we are taking a step forward in the field of sustainable and environmentally friendly technology,” said Woo Jin Choi, Vice President of GS Caltex.
