Closing the Loop for a Sustainable Tomorrow

Join us on our journey to reduce plastic waste. Here’s how and why we do it — every little bit counts.

The Problem

Estimates show that less than 10% of the plastic manufactured each year is recycled, with the production of material that is not typically recycled to increase by almost 4% every year until 2030. The majority of plastic ends up in oceans and landfills, posing a serious disruption to our ecosystems. Researchers predict such materials could take a minimum of 450 years to biodegrade, if ever.

8 million

tons of plastic waste make their way into our oceans every year. This plastic does not decompose, it just breaks down into smaller pieces.

95%

of plastic packaging is used once.

1 billion

metric tons of plastic will be consumed by 2050.

$80B

the value of single use plastic thrown away each year.

400+

years for plastic to break down.

Supporting a Circular Economy

For too long, our economy has been “linear”. That means raw material is transformed into a finished product and after it ends its life cycle it becomes waste.

The circular economy vision and approach gives endless possibilities to create a thriving economy.

Creating a More Sustainable Future

By improving recycling practices today, we can protect our environment and build a cleaner tomorrow.

Game Changing Approach

We recycle waste plastic into reusable products, that are otherwise destined for landfill.

  • Freepoint utilizes innovative advanced recycling technology to process plastic that is not currently recycled.
  • Our advanced recycling systems employ proven pyrolysis technology, decreasing plastic waste sent to landfills.
  • By converting plastic waste into reusable products, less oil is required to be extracted from the ground.
  • The result, a more sustainable economy, transitioning off fossil fuels.

How We Make an Impact

0

million pounds of new plastic that will be created from recycled materials.

0

million pounds per year of waste plastic avoiding landfills per facility.

0

fewer garbage trucks per year per facility.

Each Freepoint advanced recycling facility reduces GHG emissions by the equivalent of 450,000 cars.
