Nexus Fuels LLC and Shell have announced a supply agreement for pyrolysis liquid made from plastic waste, which is then converted into chemical products. The supply agreement is for 60 000 t over four years.
Nexus will supply fully circular, ISCC Plus-certified product from its plant in Atlanta, Georgia. US.
This enhanced collaboration follows a year of continuous supply to Shell’s chemical plant in Norco, Louisiana, US, where it has been used in the liquid cracker to make chemicals. The new agreement is a next step towards Shell’s ambition to use 1 million tpy of plastic waste in its global chemical plants by 2025.
Jeff Gold, Nexus Chief Executive Officer, said: “We appreciate Shell’s support of Nexus to convert waste plastics to virgin-molecule feedstocks and back into chemical products. Their teams have been great partners and share our philosophy and vision for improving our environment.”
Thomas Casparie, Executive Vice President of Shell’s global chemicals business, added: “Real-world, in-plant testing and application is key to proving technologies and scaling up production of chemicals from plastic waste. This new supply agreement with Nexus is built on that solid foundation and is a positive step towards providing our customers with bigger volumes of sustainable, circular chemicals.”
