Plastic waste in landfill

Italian oil and gas company Eni and NextChem, the Maire Tecnimont Group’s subsidiary for green chemistry, have partnered for a new circular technologies project. The new plastic waste-to-gas plant will be built within Eni's refinery in Taranto, South Italy.

The facility will be added to a portfolio of others including the waste-to-hydrogen production plant in Venice and the waste-to-methanol production plant in Livorno, Tuscany.

The three plants will use NextChem’s technology for the chemical recycling of plastic waste and dry waste.
