McDermott FEED for French plastic recycling project

Circular economy

France McDermott has secured a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract from Michelin Group in France for the first industrialization of plastic recycling process.

The innovative plastic recycling process produces regenerated styrene from polystyrene. The regenerated styrene produced will be used in the production of synthetic rubber for tires and polystyrene.

McDermott will provide value engineering, risk analysis and a detailed constructability study within this industry-first FEED. Work on the project, executed from McDermott’s office in Brno, Czech Republic, will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in third quarter 2021.
