QCP was founded in April 2014 and build a polymer recycling plant with a nameplate capacity of 35.000 tonne on the Chemelot Site in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands. This first module will be expanded to 50.000 mt once the nameplate capacity is reached and doubled after that to 100.000 mt. The initiators are Huub Meessen and Marc Houtermans.

QCP is based on the Chemelot Site, a strategic location in terms of polymers research, development and production of Polymers. At the heart of Western Europe, QCP benefits both in terms of supply and demand from the high population density. In addition to that, QCP has easy access to rail, barge and road connections.
QCP is producing Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) compounds from circular polymers (post-consumer and post-industrial waste) for typical applications such as Crates & Boxes, Bottles & Cans, Automotive parts and E&E applications.
