The LyondellBasell (LYB) and EEW collaboration represents an advancement in recycling opportunities.
The proposed collaboration could construct waste pre-sorting facilities at or near EEW incineration plants in Germany to remove plastics from waste streams that are sent for incineration, LyondellBasell said in a statement. The companies would invest in advanced sorting facilities to refine the plastic that has been removed, the Houston-based multinational chemical group added.
LyondellBasell, a global leader in the chemical industry, and EEW Energy from Waste, a leading company in thermal waste treatment in Europe recently signed a letter of intent (LOI).

This proposed collaboration would potentially include construction of waste pre-sorting facilities at or near EEW incineration plants to remove plastics from waste streams bound fo
