Dow and Freepoint Eco-Systems announce supply agreement to transform plastic waste into new circular products

The supply agreement for 65,000 metric tons of circular feedstock advances the Companies' shared goal to support a circular economy for plastics in North America.* Once completed, Freepoint Eco-Systems' advanced recycling facility, to be built in Arizona, will be ISCC Plus-Certified and will recycle end-of-life plastic waste, otherwise destined for landfills or incineration, from the region.

  • As the sole offtaker from phase one of the Arizona facility, Dow will transform the certified-circular liquid supply into virgin-grade equivalent plastics and develop new products to meet customer demand for recycled content through a mass balance approach.
  • The supply agreement demonstrates Dow's momentum towards achieving its "Transform the Waste" goal to accelerate the circular ecosystem.
