Argonne National Laboratory Study Indicates Pyrolysis Offers Significant Reductions in Greenhouse Gas Emissions

A recent study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory reveals that advanced recycling of post-use plastic (PUP) can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance the recycling rate in the U.S.

This research, featured in the Journal of Cleaner Production, demonstrates an increasingly practical alternative to traditional plastic production. By replacing fossil-based methods with pyrolysis technology, the process transforms hard-to-recycle plastics into valuable raw materials, ultimately reducing the need for fossil resources and minimizing the environmental impact of waste management.


Let’s give waste plastics a valuable second life.
