Plastic waste as a valuable resource
In April 2023, we began converting plastic waste into oil (naphta) at our brand-new facility in Fårevejle, Denmark.
A milestone for us and a development that shows how end-of-life plastic can be a valuable resource.
At WPU, we do it by using pyrolysis – a well-established process – but what sets us apart is our proprietary batch and process technology which has been thoroughly tested and is now proving its worth.
We’ve planned and prepared for the construction of our next facilities in Nakskov and Esbjerg. These facilities will be fully operational by the end of 2026. All production from our initial factories will be bought by the global energy and commodities company Vitol.
“Vitol believes that the WPU proprietary process technology will make a significant impact in the future plastic waste upcycling industry.” Tom Baker, Global Head of Naphtha trading at Vitol
