Bio2Electric receives SBIR to develop mixed plastics up-scaling technology

July 2019: Bio2Electric, LLC was awarded a $200,000 DOE SBIR contract to develop its novel oxidative plastic cracking technology.  This technology utilizes Bio2Electric’s core chemical looping know-how and can convert unseparated mixture of plastic waste (HDPE, LDPE, PE, PET, PS, and others) back to their fundamental chemical building blocks.  This “ultimate” in recycling technology allows the production of recycled plastics with identical physical properties as virgin plastic, is internally energy balanced and does not require any plastic waste separation.
