ACC establishes new plastics-to-oil alliance

The new plastics-to-oil technologies alliance will work to increase awareness of the benefits of plastics-to-oil technologies, enhance the industry's voice through expanded membership and demonstrate broad support for plastics-to-oil technologies through an expanding network of allies, according to a news release.
