Low Emissions Fuels from

Plastic Waste

Abstract Texture

OVERVIEW

 

Our fuels are made from plastic waste rather than crude oil, using a low-carbon process. Pretty much any type of plastic waste can be used, including that currently deemed 'un-recyclable', such as municipal mixed plastics, polystyrene, and ocean plastic. The plastic does not have to be cleaned or sorted. 

Various types of fuel can be produced. Our diesel can be used in existing diesel engines, and typically has 15% higher combustion efficiency than standard diesel and lower emissions. 

OUR CAPABILITIES

 

Our optimised pyrolysis process converts plastic waste into fuels with world-leading efficiency. When dealing with un-recyclable mixed plastic, varying ratios of different plastic types between batches does not affect the quality of fuel produced. By-products of the  process are syngas, which is used for electricity to power the process, and carbon black, which can be used for various industrial purposes such as in tires or printer ink.

Converting Plastic Waste into Premium Fuels

The flowchart below shows the process by which we convert plastic waste into premium diesel fuel. However, all types of fuel can be produced - including kerosene, aviation and even rocket fuel!

PLASTIC WASTE

Our process can take any type of plastic waste, without the need for cleaning or sorting. This includes municipal mixed plastics, ocean plastics, silage wrap and tires. 

CHEMICAL PROCESS

Pyrolysis is a chemical process that heats material in the absence of oxygen. Our process is one of the most efficient in the world, with a number of operational benefits including modular design. 

PREMIUM DIESEL

The premium fuel that is produced through this process is high performance and low emissions, and is ready to go straight into existing diesel engines without the need for further refining.

WHO WE WORK WITH

INDUSTRY WITH PLASTIC WASTE

Do you produce plastic waste at an industrial scale?

Contact us to learn about how to extract value from this waste, and avoid costs associated with storing or disposing. If you also require diesel fuel for your operations, even better!

MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENTS

Are you a Municipal Government with a mixed plastics waste problem? 

Contact us to learn about how you can convert this waste (particularly 'un-recyclable' mixed plastic waste) into fuels, that can power your vehicles - even garbage collection trucks!

PLASTIC

PRODUCERS

Are you a plastic producer looking for 'end of life' options for your products?

Contact us to learn about how we can help you earn revenue from these, and maintain your regulatory and social licence to operate.

FUEL

COMPANIES

Are you a liquid fuel company, or a consumer of fuels, looking for more sustainable options?

 

Contact us to learn about how you can procure 'Renewable Fuel' (as defined by ARENA) from local plastic waste rather than importing fuel from international markets.
