PKN ORLEN selects KBR for plastics recycling projects

KBR announced today that it has been awarded a feasibility study contract by PKN ORLEN to evaluate plastics recycling projects in Central Europe utilizing KBR’s Hydro-PRT℠ technology. KBR and PKN ORLEN have also signed a Letter of Intent to collaborate on the development of future projects.

Along with KBR, PKN ORLEN will assess the implementation of Hydro-PRT as the core technology for recycling waste plastics to support PKN-ORLEN’s corporate ESG and circularity objectives. Hydro-PRT is an advanced recycling technology that converts waste plastic into petrochemical and refinery products and is offered by KBR in alliance with Mura Technology.

"This contract represents an important milestone for KBR and PKN-ORLEN to assess the long-term potential of this breakthrough technology,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “We are confident that Hydro-PRT will enable PKN ORLEN to achieve its corporate ESG and decarbonization objectives.”

KBR has been a leader in process technology development, commercialization, and plant design solutions for over 50 years.
