International Recycling Group
From the IRG Website...
International Recycling Group is developing what will be the world's largest plastics recycling plant, at a first-of-its-kind facility in the Midwestern US. We will sort, process and re-sell all types and grades of plastic. International Recycling Group will be the first company in the world dedicated to processing and marketing high volumes of alternative fuel for the integrated steel industry repurposed from plastic scrap that is generally not otherwise marketable for recycling. We will also sell very high volumes of certain pure grades of plastic to traditional recyclers.
Our primary raw material is plastic scrap with little economic resale value which would otherwise end up either landfilled or exported at heavily discounted value relative to the material's embedded energy content. After sorting and processing at ultra-high speed, using the latest technology, a portion of the formerly uneconomical plastic scrap is sold as high-grade regrind; the remainder is blended to a tightly controlled specification of fuel for our steel industry customers.
International Recycling Group's plastic fuel/reducing agent will become a significant energy source for steel industry blast furnace operators. Every ton of IRG's plastic product that is consumed in a blast furnace is one less ton of plastic that finds its way into a landfill, and reduces consumption of virgin fossil fuel by the steel industry. When injected into a blast furnace, IRG's product also reduces blast furnace emissions of carbon dioxide and other particulates. The result is improved air quality and a reduced carbon footprint in the production of steel.
International Recycling Group is a team of highly experienced professionals with extensive knowledge of plastics recycling and steel production. Collectively, we have an unparalleled track record of successful start-ups in our respective industries.
The International Recycling Group team is impassioned about accomplishing nothing short of revolutionizing the life-cycle of plastics.
