CPChem Secures Long-term Recycled Feedstock Supply from Nexus Circular’s New Facility

Nexus Circular announced that the company has signed a long-term commercial agreement with Chevron Phillips Chemical (CPChem) for the supply of a significant volume annually of circular liquid feedstocks from a new advanced recycling facility.
Difficult-to-Recycle Plastics into New Products
This long-term contractual commitment further strengthens CPChem’s relationship with Nexus for advanced recycled plastic feedstocks to produce Marlex® Anew™ Circular Polyethylene. Nexus has been supplying CP Chem for over two years with consistent bulk shipments of ISCC PLUS certified materials.
In December 2021, Six Pines Investments LLC, a wholly owned sustainable investment subsidiary of CP Chem, made a meaningful investment in Nexus to expand production at the Atlanta, Georgia, facility. Both companies are continuing discussions for future new expansion commitments.
CPChem is targeting an annual production volume of 1 billion pounds of Marlex® Anew™ Circular Polyethylene by 2030. The proven, fully commercialized advanced recycling technology from Nexus repeatedly transforms difficult-to-recycle plastics into pristine new products to accelerate the transition to a circular economy for plastics.

Clint Thompson, chief commercial officer at Nexus, stated, “Nexus is delivering real-world scalable solutions to meet the outsized demands for virgin-quality recycled plastics. We are thrilled to collaborate with CPChem as we rapidly expand our innovation footprint.”
