Zzyzx Polymers LLC (pronounced ziz-iks) is developing a first-of-its-kind manufacturing facility in order to produce high-value recycled plastics and specialty plastics using a patented process called shear compatibilized extrusion (SCE). Zzyzx has obtained exclusive license from Northwestern University and Bucknell University to the technology for the purpose of commercializing SCE. It has already engaged a number of companies that have evaluated lab-scale samples. To date, proof of concept projects have been completed at small-scale, produced at pounds/hr, for several post-consumer plastic materials. However, large scale production at hundreds of pounds/hr will be demonstrated at the Bridgeworks facility in order illustrate SCE’s full commercial potential.
