About Renew One

Join us in our mission of creating circular economies around plastics.

​Renew One was founded at MIT, with the vision to be a technology leader in developing solutions to plastic waste.

Everything we do at Renew One is guided by our core values

Our Mission

Renew One was founded at MIT, with the vision to be a technology leader in developing solutions to landfill-bound waste. Through our proprietary advanced recycling process, which allows us to reverse plastic back into its basic molecular structure, we convert non-recycled plastic waste into new valuable products such as high-value petrochemical feedstocks.

Our Purpose

Renew One’s purpose is to develop technologies and processes to address our core mission of preventing landfill-bound waste. We envision a world in which there is no waste, as each item is renewed in some way. By renewing each waste stream and giving it some value, it ensures that waste will not only stay out of landfills, but out of our precious environment too.
