Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Waste to Resource (Commercialisation of WarwickFBR™ technology which can recycle Mixed Plastic Waste into a hydrocarbon product, the Plaxx™)
Reporting period: 2015-06-01 to 2015-10-31
Plastic waste can be economically recycled into new products using mechanical processes such as extrusion or injection moulding. However, this method is suitable only for single streams of clean plastics. Recycling Technologies have developed a technology, the WarwickFBR™, which can recycle end of life mixed plastic waste using pyrolysis. The output from the technology is a machine, the RT7000, that can convert the waste, into a valuable hydrocarbon product we call Plaxx™. Plaxx™ can be used as a substitute for Ultra Low Sulphur Heavy Fuel Oil, wax and as a polymer feedstock for plastic manufacturing. The technology is in the ‘demonstration to market’ stage. The key objective of this action was to engage with key stakeholder to assess the feasibility of our technology.
• Mixed Plastic Waste with minimal pre-treatment
• At a lower cost than the currently available solutions
• In a more environmentally beneficial process
• In a localised manner by taking the solution to plastic waste rather than transporting plastic to the solution.
