Agilyx announced that the European Patent Office (EPO) has issued a decision to grant a patent for the proprietary process for polishing Agilyx Synthetic Crude Oil (“ASCO”). The patent – EP2981593 – underscores Agilyx’s commitment to bringing its technological expertise and IP knowledge to the European market.
The newly patented process optimizes the removal of contaminants from ASCO with the use of proprietary equipment. ASCO is the product of Agilyx’s advanced recycling conversion process, which is delivered to customers as the building block for the manufacture of circular plastics. The resulting purer form of ASCO maximizes its compatibility with existing refining processes, while minimizing the damaging effects of contaminants on refinery equipment.
