KBR has revealed that it has been awarded a feasibility study contract by PKN ORLEN to evaluate plastics recycling projects in Central Europe utilising its 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.

“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 of technology.
“We are confident that Hydro-PRT will enable PKN ORLEN to achieve its corporate ESG and decarbonisation objectives.”
