Plastic Waste “Crisis” Solved!

We’ve seen this before as a DIY back yard thing. This is industrial scale.

Pyrolytic conversion of plastic waste to oil.

Waste plastic management is biggest problem now due to their non-biodegradability nature. Now conversion of waste plastic into fuel oil is one of the best means of recycling plastic waste. This technology not only protects the environment, but also helps us to conserve the valuable petroleum resources.

Beston waste plastic to fuel conversion plant adopts the advanced pyrolysis technology, which can be used for recycling plastic into fuel oil and carbon black. In general, our pyrolysis plants can handle these waste plastics, they are PP, PE, PS, ABS, pure white plastic, plastic brand,pure plastic cable ect. But type of plastics will also effect the rate of conversion of into fuel.

This process involves catalytic degradation of waste plastic into fuel range hydrocarbon i.e. petrol, diesel and kerosene etc. A catalytic cracking process in which waste plastic were cracked at very high temperature, the resulting gases were condensed to recover liquid fuels. And the detailed plastic to fuel conversion process can be described as follows:

And more…

Got Plastic trash? Make oil. No more problem.

    This has already been done a zillion times already ;) With plastic, bagasse, tires, you name it. Sure it can be done, but it’s a costs a lot of energy. Especially when compared with refining crude.

    My impression is the ocean is grinding it to tiny bits without us spending any time on it.

    Not to different from KIOR, who developed a wood chip to oil process, but went bust when oil dropped to $40 a barrel. If its got carbon, it can be thermally cracked to liquid hydrocarbons. Trash, plastic, trees, sawmill waste, stumps, the millions of acres of brush and scrub in Cali. coal, peat, ….. Its a matter of cost.

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    Was a commercially viable process in 1990’s when oil was at $90 a barrel, well sorted technology only needs two things, cheap enough supply of waste plastic and high enough price of oil to make it profitable. Think of it as a tertiary oil reserve. When oil shortages happen and oil prices go up it suddenly becomes profitable and waste plastic becomes a resource rather than a disposal problem.

  4. E.M.Smith says:

    @Jim2: It uses the oil it makes to run the process, no added fuel. The purpose is to remove plastic, not replace oil pumping.

    Oh, FWIW, polyethylene and polypropylene are basicslly solid gasoline and work really well in a fire place, wood stove or camp fire… not that I’ve done it… much… recently… in California…..

    But an empty milk jug starts wood it the brick BBQ nicely….

    Of course we won’t see one “Green” person promoting or supporting the use of this technology, because CO2, don’t you know.
    Perhaps we should all write to that nice Attenborough chappy.
    Even though it would clean up the world quite quickly, they should also be able to find a use for heat generated during the process.

    In other news
    The head of Burisma Holdings, the energy company on which Hunter Biden served on the board, has been indicted by Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General for money laundering and corruption, according to Ukrainian MP Alexander Dubinsky.
    During a Wednesday press conference, Dubinsky claimed that an investigation into Nikolai Zlochevsky and Burisma found a “link that reveals how money is siphoned [from Ukraine],” notably through Hunter Biden, who received $16.5 million “through criminal means and money laundering.”

    I’ve opened a page for discussion of all things Ukraine:
    as I expect the indictment will cause a lot of chatter / news…
