According to a press release on the company’s website, LyondellBasell is planning to establish a joint venture with French water and waste management company SUEZ to acquire a 50% share in the Netherlands-based plastics recycling company, Quality Circular Polymers (QCP).

QCP will reportedly have the capacity to convert waste material into 35,000 tons/year of PP and HDPE at its Sittard-Geleen facility in the Netherlands as of 2018. The company also aims to boost its capacity to 50,000 tons/year before 2020.

Accordingly, LyondellBasell is expected to market the plastics and SUEZ will provide plastic waste for the plant. This also marks the first time that a major plastics and chemicals company is partnering with a resource management company, the media reported.

The French company reportedly owns 9 facilities, which are capable of converting 400,000 tons/year plastic waste into 150,000 tons/year new plastics.

The companies did not disclose the financial details regarding the transaction at the time of publication.
