Tigard, OREGON -- (Marketwire) -- 05/29/12 -- Agilyx Corporation in Tigard has earned a spot on the highly coveted Red Herring Top 100 List for developing the technology that makes premium synthetic crude oil from difficult-to-recycle waste plastic, effectively converting all types of plastic (#1-7) normally destined for landfills into an economical, domestic source of high-value crude oil.
Red Herring recognizes the innovations and technologies of emerging companies within their respective industries, and is a prestigious award for promising new companies and entrepreneurs that are leading the next wave of innovation. RH editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
Congratulations Agilyx Corp! You're creating local jobs and addressing two important issues with one affordable, modular solution.

You can help. Do you have one hour a week to invest as a mentor?
The Tigard Police, Tigard-Tualatin School District, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and local faith-based organizations have joined forces to develop the Tigard-Tualatin Mentoring Partnership.
- Community-based mentors spend approximately one hour a week with their Little Brother or Little Sister (ages 6-16) doing things that they both enjoy. This can be playing sports, attending a community event, or just having a milkshake and talking.
- School-based mentors participate in programs operating at Bridgeport Elementary School in Tualatin and Metzger Elementary in Tigard. Mentors spend one hour per week, generally at lunch, meeting with a student.
