ESG Today writes that 2015-founded Resynergi uses a technology called Continuous Microwave Assisted Pyrolysis (CMAP) in order to process plastics and turn these polluting materials into new, sustainable alternatives. The Californian company already collaborates with recycling organizations to get constant streams of hard-to-recycle plastics, such as polypropylene and polystyrene, which are among the 60% of the most common types of plastics that are being produced.

Resynergi officials claim that their CMAP technology can process and convert plastic waste into reusable products 20 times faster than traditional pyrolysis methods, while also generating new materials with a 68% lower carbon footprint.

Resynergi CEO Brian Bauer said that "we’re accelerating plastic circularity with our technology. By diverting plastic from our landfills and oceans we’re on a mission to protect human health and our environment."

Transitions First and Lummus Technology were among those who participated in the 7 million USD investment round.

Last year we wrote about Eco Panplas, a Brazilian team of experts which uses a special process to decontaminate and degrease the plastic before it is being recycled, without the use of water. Through the special technical solution, which was developed over the course of six years, residual oil can be recovered and recycled itself, eliminating the risk it can pose to the environment. The plastic itself can also be recycled easier and at a higher quality and the resulted plastic material ban be 10% cheaper compared to existing prices on the market.
