It was a big week of news for Licella and their Cat-HTR platform in Australia with two soft plastic project announcements. First, Licella joined forces with a group of high-profile companies like Nestlé and LyondellBasell, who have collaborated to produce Australia’s first soft plastic food wrapper made with food-grade recycled content. Second, Licella launched a feasibility study with other key industry stakeholders, including major Australian retailer Coles to determine the technical, economic, and environmental benefits of a local advanced recycling industry and will look at potential sites in Victoria (Australia) for a Cat-HTR plant.
In today’s Digest, all about the KitKat wrapper, the feasibility study, how Licella takes plastic waste to plastic resource, the path to commercialization, other big news from down under, and more.
“I look forward to bringing you more announcements as we move towards commercialisation of our pioneering technology,” said Dr Len Humphreys, CEO, Licella Holdings, so we anticipate more news coming from Licella in 2021. In the meantime, you can check out Licella’s video “From plastic waste to plastic resource” here.
You can also read about the Trans-Pacific Partnership as covered in The Digest in October 2020 when Licella entered into a new joint venture with Canadian Forest Products Ltd, usually known as Canfor — the JV is called Arbios Biotech. The goal of the JV is to accelerate adoption of ultra low-carbon fuels technology.
