Electrified conversion of plastic waste into olefins & downstream integration

Project description

Plastic waste streams recycled into olefins

Less than 10 % of plastic is recycled. The rest ends up in landfills or is incinerated. In this context, the EU-funded ELECTRO project will demonstrate new technology that connects the waste and petrochemical industries to provide a sustainable and scalable circular solution with a low carbon footprint for olefin and polyolefin production. ELECTRO will prioritise plastic waste streams by combining an innovative modular extruder for the optimal pre-treatment of plastic waste with an electrically heated reactor for the catalytic pyrolysis of plastic waste. The main product, plastic waste pyrolysis oil, will be used as a feed for steam crackers. The project will test the technology using waste streams from the Republics of Korea and Indonesia.
