Intermix Performance Technologies

Intermix Performance Materials is revolutionizing plastics recycling with our additive technology, enabling the efficient conversion of mixed plastic waste into high-quality recycled products. Today, only pure plastic waste streams can be recycled. For example, many detergent bottles are made of two plastics — one for the cap and another for the bottle. If these products are not separated upon disposal and get baled together at a recycling facility, the bale must be sent to landfill since the plastics are not compatible and produce a brittle, low-quality plastic. Our portfolio of patented additives bind these mixed plastics, increasing the capital efficiency and product value for mechanical recyclers. Plastic recycling rates in the US are at 5-6%, and Intermix is here to change that.
