Agilyx Corporation has technology to recycle plastics by two processes. Waste polystyrene (plastic #6) is converted back to styrene suitable for manufacture of rigid plastic and foam. Their new plant has capacity for 10 tons per day of waste polystyrene. Previously only poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PETE, #1) and high density polyethylene (HDPE, #2) were extensively recycled to primary use products.  By their second process mixed plastics are converted to a crude oil suitable for energy production.
