Creating Solutions At Every Turn

Developing viable technologies that convert waste plastic, anywhere in the world, into useful products. 

Our Story

PDO’s Founder, Kevin DeWhitt, has spent 24 years actively engaged in the waste plastic conversion technology sector.  In 2004, he founded Agilyx Corporation (then Plas2Fuel) and spent the next 10 years developing a commercial system capable of converting waste plastic into synthetic crude oil.  He has been granted eight patents nationally and one international patent in this emerging field and in 2012-13, three 50-ton per day (TPD) commercial installations of the Agilyx waste plastic conversion system were completed and successfully commissioned.


Mr. DeWhitt left Agilyx in the summer of 2014 with the goal of refocusing his efforts on small scale efforts that could better serve local communities; it is his belief that properly scaled and implemented waste conversion technologies will lead to economically and environmentally sustainable outcomes.  Regardless of geographic location, localized environmental restoration, localized job creation and localized energy/new plastic production are the drivers behind the efforts of the PDO Technologies world-class team.
