Turning plastic waste back into oil.
Using a recently developed and specific technology, we are able to turn any recyclable or un-recyclable plastic (that would usually be burned or landfilled) back into its original form of oil. The issue in the past has been the ability to process enough plastic waste on a larger scale to actually make a difference in the waste issue we have to actually solve the problem, Now we can!
What separates us is that we are able to scale and process larger amounts of plastic waste in a smaller area that has basically no carbon footprint. This it allows us to double or triple these numbers much faster from 120 tonne per day, to 240-360 plus tonnes per day with no affect on the environment.
Each reactor has the capacity to handle 20 tonnes of plastic waste.
The plastic waste is transformed into 14 tonnes of oil.
and also produces 5 tonnes of Biogas.
We are able processes virtually all types of plastic and leave no environmentally harmful residues.
Plastic can be recycled mechanically up to 6-7 times. After this, the building blocks in the plastic are so worn that they have to be incinerated or disposed of.
Through the process of pyrolysis we can now transform the spent plastic into new products creating the circular economy we've all been looking for.
Plastic waste in Australia
Informal processing involves washing and melting the plastic, which uses a lot of water and energy and produces a lot of smoke. The untreated water is discharged to waterways, and around 20 percent of the plastic is unusable, so it is dumped and usually burnt, creating more litter and air quality problems
It is estimated about 130,000 tonnes of Australian plastic ends up in waterways and oceans each year. The three main ways it ends up there, according to WWF, are littering, products like wet wipes being flushed and plastic flying away from landfill processing.
