The Big Picture

Well on the way to a sustainable future

At SynCycle, we are committed to unwaste plastic! For a better tomorrow, we all have to consider the big picture and start to take action – join us and become part of the solution!

In the 21st century, humanity enters the age of plastic. As an incredibly versatile material group, plastic is already an integral part of our daily life. This will not change in the foreseeable future. What needs to change is, however, the way we handle this valuable resource once it has fulfilled its purpose. The sight of plastic islands drifting in our oceans or polluted beaches must not be our legacy for future generations.

SynCycle is part of the solution. By utilizing chemical recycling processes, discarded plastic re-enters the value chain boosting the transformation towards a truly circular economy.

Recognizing the value of plastic waste


Waste or valuable resource? Know-how makes the difference!
SynCycle technology utilizes the full performance potential of chemical plastic recycling.


Chemical Recycling

offers new opportunities for the plastic value chain.


By means of thermal depolymerization, plastic is broken down into its monomers inside a pyrolysis reactor. The produced circular oil is the feedstock for chemical and plastic industry, thereby closing the circle.

SynCycle takes the role

as a leading innovator in this development.


Regulations, policies and a change in public awareness sustainably shape the plastic recycling landscape.

Would you burn or bury a valuable resource? We wouldn’t because we know about the value of plastic waste.

SynCycle Technology

A robust and modular solution for chemical recycling

Our unique technological approach of a decentralized and modular concept enables customers to turn plastic waste locally into valuable resources. SynCycle makes chemical recycling a viable and adaptable technology which is accessible to all players along the plastic value chain.

SynCycle has developed a technology that transforms non-recyclable plastic into new products. In cooperation with BDI BioEnergy International and the Next Generation Group, chemical recycling by using the SynCyle technology offers a one-stop shop concept for all process steps.

1. Mixed plastic waste

is utilized as feedstock material

2. In feedstock pre-treatment,

the plastic is shredded, dried and melted

3. In the pyrolysis reactor,

the polymers are decomposed into shorter hydrocarbons – pyrolysis gas is generated

4. The downstream unit

transforms the pyrolysis gas into circular oil using a condensation process.

5. The circular oil

is refined to highest quality standards and re-enters the value chain as feedstock in the chemical and plastic industry.



Circular Economy

It is about redefining growth
