Sustainable energy recovery from waste plastic, tyres and crude oil sludge
This process involves the thermal cracking to reduce larger molecules of raw waste into smaller one’s resulting in oil, gas and carbon black (charlcol) to produce industrial grade oil (fuel)
This recycled produced oil will be used as a replacement to diesel in:
-Hot water generators
-Hot air generators
-Thermal fluid heaters
Raw waste material consists of a mixture of plastics and tyre waste:
-Mixed plastic (HDPE, LDPE, PE, PP, NYLON, TEFLON, PS, ABS, FRP)
-Multi layered plastic
-Plastic or rubber parts from vehicles
– Waste oils
No need for segregation or cleaning of raw material, tolerance of 5% of dust and 5% moisture and PVC and polycarbonate should be less than 5%.
Gas generated is reused in the process as source of heat for conducting the reaction.
95% conversion of waste to oil is achieved
Low cost production
90% of the plant consists of non-moving parts
No external fuel required
By products produced such as gas and carbon black is sold off into various industries for:
-Filler in plastic recycling plants
The plant is fully automated with ease of cleaning without dismantling. No manual handling of carbon black. No heating and cooling cycles. Automated firing systems.
Safety aspects of the plant include; airlock feeding, low pressure operation, carbon removal by closed system, no direct heating, certified firing system. Scrubbing system consists of; no SPM, chemical or thermal emissions exceeding limits.
Compliant with EU emission standards
1 ton of plastic can yield as much as 700 litres of fuel
Plastic can yields 70-90% oil with 5-8% carbon black ( charcoal and gas)
Tyres can yield 40-45% oil with 30-35% carbon black
10 tons of waste can produce 6000-9000 litres of industrial diesel oil
7000 litres of oil (fuel) can be used to generate 1 MW/hr of power
Quality of industrial oil (fuel) is more than 95% match to current vehicle grade fuel
This plant will provide 300 days per year of operation with 100% environmental compliance and zero industrial effluent technology.
This plant will require raw materials and therefore create work for the unskilled workers.
This plant will offer an alternative supply of fuel, should there be a need for additional fuel
Surplus fuel can be exported to surrounding island.
Catalysts will be suggested for new types of plastic waste to ensure the quality of the oil.
Rec-o-quip is able to supply all the equipment and plant, from the collection of raw waste, sorting of raw waste material to the refinery process and anything in between.
