Plastic Waste to Fuel
Plastics are made from crude oil. By utilizing a process called Pyrolysis, waste plastics, such as used plastic bags, wrapping materials and packaging products, can be transformed from their existing solid state into their original liquid form, oil.
This oil, manufactured from plastic waste, is similar in character to crude oil, has a very low sulphur content and can be further refined into commercial fuel products, such as Diesel, Gasoline and Kerosene.
Pyrolysis is widely considered the most viable and environmentally friendly solution for the removal of plastic waste from the environment. Once the plastic has been converted into oil, it can also be partially used to create new plastic products, thus decreasing the need for the production of new crude oil.
