Dow, Circusil To Build Silicone Recycling Plant

Dow and Circusil have partnered to construct their first commercial scale silicone recycling plant in North America. 

This facility will recycle silicone waste streams from Dow’s U.S. operations, as well as post-industrial waste streams from customers.

Operations are targeted to begin in the fourth quarter of 2024.The strategic investment marks a substantial milestone in Dow’s silicone circularity journey and will allow the company to produce silicone polymers derived from silicone waste and end-of-life products originating from U.S. operations.

The advanced recycling process that will be used at the new facility contributes to enhanced sustainability, according to the company. In addition to achieving silicone recycling by closing the loop and ultimately reintroducing the recycled silicone product into silicone production, it also aims to reduce the overall carbon footprint. Recycled silicones exhibit a lower carbon footprint, compared to silicone manufactured from virgin material.

For Dow’s U.S. customers, this new facility in Paris, Kentucky, once completed, will generate the opportunity to:

• Recycle silicone waste from their own operations and therefore reduce their carbon footprint and Scope 1 or 3 emissions associated with waste treatment.

• Ultimately have access to recycled based silicone polymers to address the growing demand for circular solutions.

• Accelerate progress toward their own sustainability objectives.
