Mura Technology and KBR announced today that they have won a contract from GS Caltex for their planned plastics circularity project in South Korea.
Based on KBR and Mura’s Hydro-PRT™ process, the 50 kTA unit will convert waste plastics into raw materials for conversion into new plastics, achieving total circularity.
“We are thrilled to support GS Caltex in their effort to integrate circularity in their value chain,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “Hydro-PRT is positioned to play a pivotal role in KBR’s effort to help our clients’ ESG objectives through our sustainability platform.”
“Along with KBR, I am pleased to support GS Caltex in its endeavor to establish early leadership in plastics circularity,” said Dr. Steve Mahon, CEO of Mura Technology. “Our differentiated, proven, and scalable Hydro-PRT process is designed to enable companies to achieve their ESG goals and we are excited to work with the team of GS Caltex for the same.”
“Deploying KBR’s plastics recycling technology, offered in alliance with Mura, marks one of the key factors for us at GS Caltex towards meeting our circularity targets. With this contract we move a step ahead in the sustainable and green technology sector by establishing a greener facility,” said Woo Jin Choi, Vice President of GS Caltex.
