Freepoint Eco-Systems launches construction on first commercial-scale facility in Ohio

Geographic expansion

  • Freepoint Eco-Systems, a Texas-based company that uses advanced recycling technology to secure and recycle plastic, launched construction of its first commercial-scale flagship advanced plastics recycling facility located in Hebron, Ohio.

  • The plant, which is international sustainability and carbon certification (ISCC) plus certified, will operate using Freepoint’s proprietary pyrolysis technology, at a capacity of around 90,000 metric tons of recycled waste plastic per year, generating 90% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuel-based plastic.

  • The plant will be built in an existing 260,000 sqft warehouse, spanning 25 acres, and is expected to create 200 construction jobs in Ohio in 2023 and 70 full-time jobs upon the start of its operations in H1 2024.

  • All recycled plastic feedstock from the new plant is set to be sold to Shell as per a long-term supply agreement signed by the two companies in early 2022.

  • Analyst QuickTake: Freepoint has another advanced plastic recycling unit under construction in Texas, in collaboration with Freepoint Eco-Systems and TotalEnergies slated to begin operations in mid-2024. The new plant is the latest of Freepoint’s efforts to expand its advanced recycling footprint in the US.
