Senator Killion Announces $3 million Grant for Construction of Innovative Recycling Plant in Marcus Hook

Harrisburg, PA- Today, Senator Tom Killion (R-9) announced his efforts in advocating for a $3 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant were successful and will help in the construction of a Plastics-To-Oil recycling plant in Marcus Hook.

“For the past several months I have been working with local elected officials, and the Agilyx Corporation to bring a high-tech recycling plant to the region. The facility is amazing and will help clean up the environment and create jobs in the region,” said Sen. Killion.

The Agilyx Corporation is planning to build a $35 million plastic recycling plant in Marcus Hook Borough, Delaware County.  The plant is designed to use innovative technology to process hard-to-recycle plastics that are currently not able to be recycled by traditional processes and ultimately end up in landfills.

Once completed, the plant will be able to recycle 50 tons of plastic each day. Also significant to note, the byproduct of this novel recycling process yields a Synthetic Crude Oil product that will be used by local refining and aviation companies.

“I am glad I was able to work with all the stakeholders involved to help bring this project to our region. The plant will be a big win for protecting the environment and creating jobs in the region,” concluded Senator Killion.
