THOROLD, Ont.—JBI Inc., a southwestern Ontario company that turns plastic into fuel, has scored a 10-year deal with a packaging firm in the U.S.

RockTenn Company makes paper, plastic and packaging products in Norcross, Georgia.

Under the new agreement, JBI will convert RockTenn’s mill by-product waste into fuel using its Plastic2Oil technology.

RockTenn produces thousands of tonnes of plastic per day. To handle the plastic waste stream, RockTenn has been storing this by-product in the company-owned plastic-only monofill sites for several years. JBI has exclusive rights to mine plastic from these sites

JBI will build and operate its Plastic2Oil processors at RockTenn facilities in order to process waste plastic.

RockTenn has the feedstock to support hundreds of Plastic2Oil(TM) processors, said JBI fouder and CEO John Bordyuik.

In preparation for the agreement, JBI designed its processors to be modular  ‘plug and play’ across the company’s facilities.
