Pyrolysis transforms problems into solutions
The transition from waste to new plastic takes place at WPU’s facilities.
The technology is based on pyrolysis which processes the plastic at high temperatures. Pyrolysis can be used to treat polymers that have exhausted their potential for mechanical recycling or otherwise cannot be recycled.
WPU has developed a batch technology and batch pyrolysis processes are far easier to construct and operate compared to other pyrolysis processes.
The pyrolysis facilities can process batches containing almost all kinds of plastic waste – homogeneous and nonhomogeneous. It creates a stable production and limits the resources needed for waste sorting before the pyrolysis process.
For the same reason, the technology used by WPU entails substantially lower costs than competing tech.
The plastic oils can be used in the production of new plastic products or as environmentally friendly fuels. And as a result, replace bio-oils cultivated on our agricultural land.
