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.

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
million pounds of new plastic that will be created from recycled materials.
million pounds per year of waste plastic avoiding landfills per facility.
fewer garbage trucks per year per facility.
Each Freepoint advanced recycling facility reduces GHG emissions by the equivalent of 450,000 cars.
