AlwaysFree: PureCycle CEO Dustin Olson Meets with South Korean President


  • PureCycle CEO Dustin Olson, on Tuesday, attended a collaborative meeting with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and a small group of select business leaders.

According to the company’s website news release on April 26, 2023, PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCT) CEO Dustin Olson, on Tuesday, attended a collaborative meeting with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and a small group of select U.S. and Korean business leaders. During the U.S.-Korea CEO Roundtable, Olson discussed economic matters and exchanged ideas with President Yoon and executives, who were a part of his official delegation.

Last year, PureCycle announced a joint venture agreement with SK geo centric, a South Korean-based global leader in polypropylene production, to build a cutting-edge polypropylene recycling plant in Ulsan, South Korea. The plant will be PureCycle’s first in Asia and is expected to have the capacity to produce 60,000 tons of ultra-pure recycled resin each year.

“It was an honor to be a part of today’s collaboration and to have the opportunity to discuss sustainability objectives with President Yoon and to share PureCycle’s global mission to reduce plastic waste and create a more pure planet. South Korea recently announced 17 new national sustainable development goals, and during the meeting, we illustrated to President Yoon and his team how PureCycle’s joint venture with SK geo centric could help the nation reach those targets.”

The meeting was co-hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Korea Business Council and the Federation of Korean Industries.
