WPU is Building 3 New Factories

Dato: 21. September 2021

WPU has made contracts for the construction of three new factories to produce oil from waste plastic. The last factory will be ready in 2024, and when production is up and running, WPU will potentially save our society 300,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

The first factory will be built in Fårevejle and have six new pyrolysis reactors. Next, the two factories will be located in respectively Nakskov and Esbjerg each having 12 reactors. The location at the dock is not randomly planned, as several of the major buyers of the oil made from plastic waste will have it delivered by ship.

When the three new factories are in full production, they will create approximately 140 new jobs. WPU expects to continue to expand with new factories in Germany, Norway and Sweden.

Results from ongoing production exceeds expectations

Dato: 6. August 2021

The good news is pouring out from the Waste Plastic Upcyclings (WPU) facility in Egeberg, Denmark.

After a period of testing, WPU has been in stable and continuous operation the last couple of months. And the results do not only live up to expectations – on different levels the company performs better than you would have dared hoping for.

“The latest analyses show that our utilization rate is significantly higher than expected and shows us that we are dealing with a technology with great potential to revolutionize our management of waste plastic,” Niels Bagge, the administrative director of WPU, explains.

The production at WPU’s facility in Egebjerg has the capacity to manage 17 tonnes of waste plastic each day. The waste plastic is transformed into 12 tonnes of plastic oils and 4.25 tonnes of pyrolytic gas.

The facility can virtually handle all types of plastic and leaves no environmental hazardous residues. Furthermore, the entire facility runs on the energy which comes from the process itself which means the production is 100 % circular.

The great results are also reflected in the customers who are ready to buy WPU’s plastic oils. WPU has thus entered into agreements with clients in Denmark and abroad who work with both plastic manufacturing and fuel production.

Waste Plastic Upcycling (WPU) has just now obtained ISCC certification of the company’s production in Egebjerg in Denmark.
