Pyrolysis process


According to the newest EU norms all waste material must be recycled as best as possible.

This also applies to plastic waste that so far could not be recycled and was therefore incinerated. However, these plastic materials are important energy sources.

With our patented pyrolysis process which is already installed and in use at various locations we transform this plastic waste into reusable products:

  • Synthetic fuel (synfuel) up to a customer defined quality according to Euro norm (approx. 55%)
  • Recirculate/naphtha as substitute raw material for fossil generated products in the oil and chemical industry (approx. 45%)

Based on market requirements the percentage ratio of synfuel and naphtha can be adjusted within the production process.

Contrary to the UHT process only clearly specified plastic waste is used in the pyrolysis process. We exclusively use not recyclable waste material according to predetermined specifications. Plastic as input material corresponds to the categories HDPE, LDPE, PP.

  • plastic packaging
  • plastics
  • combustible waste, waste oil
  • other waste from the mechanical waste pre-treatment or waste from mechanical sorting

From that we produce the mentioned products “SynFuel” and “Naphtha”. The quantity structure is as follows:

From 35,000 t/a plastic waste corresponding to the above mentioned specifications we generate around

  • 12* m l/a synfuel
  • 8* m l/a naphtha

The percentage ratio between synfuel and naphtha can be adjusted as required within the production process.
