Dirty plastic waste is a global challenge to be solved. Pyrolysis of plastics as a thermochemical process is an optimal and currently the only way to recycle it to be re-used in petro-chemical industry.
We have established a joint venture PlastEco Ltd to take the challenge to produce plastic oil from plastic waste. The operation at the Salpakierto’s recycling plant in Lahti starts early next year. PlastEco utilizes pyrolysis technology of Biofabrik GmbH. Our partner Salpakierto Oy provides the plastic waste and operation site with utility facilities.
The production capacity of the first step is 5 tons per day. Full recycling is reached. The produced pyrolysi oil is used as raw material for petro-chemical industry. The pyrolysis gas of the process is used in a co-gen plant to generate electricity for the process. Pyrolysis coal is used a raw material for infrastructure industry.
