A Record Year 2022: Missouri Selected for Nation’s Premier Waste-to-Renewable Chemicals Facility

As 2022 draws to a close, we’re celebrating a record-breaking year at Missouri Partnership by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today, we are highlighting Circular SynTech’s expansion into New Madrid, Missouri.

In February, Circular SynTech, LLC (CST), a leader in transforming the waste management and chemical manufacturing industries, broke ground on a new, one-of-a-kind facility that will convert municipal solid waste and construction and demolition debris into valuable renewable chemicals.

“Through its patented proprietary technology, CST utilizes waste that has historically produced environmentally damaging greenhouse gases to create valuable chemicals and distillates that replace fossil fuels in a double win for the environment,” said Dan Dockter, CST CEO. “The exceptionally professional and accommodating manner of the City, County, and State was a key factor in finding our new home in New Madrid, Missouri.”

“We are excited to welcome CST to Missouri,” said Subash Alias, Missouri Partnership CEO. “It is so great that one of our newest companies plans to deploy new technologies to solve complex waste-to-renewables challenges while creating jobs and investment in our state. We were delighted to support our long-time friends in New Madrid and look forward to seeing this project flourish in the coming months.”
