Dow will establish the first commercial-scale silicone recycling plant in North America. The move, along with partner Circusil, aims to help customers reduce their carbon footprint and meet the needs for circularity.

According to Dow officials, the plant will be in Paris, Kentucky, and open in the fourth quarter of 2024.

The facility will enable customers to:

  • Recycle silicone waste from their own operations and therefore reduce their carbon footprint and Scope 1 or 3 emissions associated with waste treatment;
  • Gain access to recycled-based silicone polymers to address the growing demand for circular solutions; and
  • Help them accelerate progress toward achieving sustainability objectives.
