Press Release
Dow and Mura Technology plan to locate Europe's largest advanced recycling facility at Dow's site in Böhlen, Germany

  • Facility expected to be the largest of its kind to date in Europe, and the first of its kind in Germany
  • Part of a goal for multiple planned units across Europe and U.S. to add as much as 600 KTA of advanced recycling capacity by 2030, enabling greater supply of recycled plastic content to major brands across the globe
  • Mura's HydroPRS™ advanced recycling process is unique, as it uses supercritical steam to convert most forms of plastics, which have previously been deemed 'unrecyclable'
  • Represents a key contribution to Dow's climate and circularity target to enable 1 million metric tons of plastic to be collected, reused or recycled by 2030
  • Dow's support of Mura Technology enables Mura to build on its multi-year pipeline of planned projects, the first of which will be sited in Teesside, U.K. and is on track to be fully operational in 2023

Dow (NYSE: Dow), the world's leading materials science company, and Mura Technology, the global pioneer of an advanced plastic recycling solution, today announce the next step in their ongoing collaboration to help solve the global plastics waste issue and advance circularity. Mura plans to construct a new facility at Dow's Böhlen site in Germany – the latest in a series of planned facilities across the U.S. and Europe to rapidly scale advanced recycling of plastics – and the first expected to be based at a Dow site. This project is targeted for a final investment decision by the end of 2023.
