Worley (WOR) has been awarded a services contract from SABIC Plastic Energy Advanced Recycling for a recycling unit in Geleen, The Netherlands.

A joint venture between SABIC and Plastic Energy, SABIC Plastic Energy Advanced Recycling is aiming to build the world’s first commercial recycling unit to produce circular plastic polymers.

Polymers are large molecules made up of repeating subunits and are used in almost every product such as phones, grocery bags, water bottles and auto parts.

The plant will be based in The Netherlands and is expected to become operational in the second half of 2022.

It will use Plastic Energy’s patented recycling technology, TACOIL, to transform plastic waste into recycled oils.

SABIC will then use TACOIL as an alternative feedstock to create plastics.

Under the contract, Worley will provide its engineering, procurement and construction services for a two-year period.

The services will be carried out by Worley’s U.K. and Netherlands offices with support to be received from its Global Integrated Delivery team in India.

“We are excited to build our relationship with SABIC and Plastic Energy and help transform the global use of waster plastics and advance the circular economy,” CEO Chris Ashton said.

“As a global professional services company headquartered in Australia, this project is an example of Worley’s strategic focus on sustainability and delivering a more sustainable world,” he added.

Worley is up a slight 0.72 per cent on the market and shares are trading at $11.18 at 2:01 pm AEDT.
