Liquid energy from plastic waste.

Liquid energy from plastic waste.

  • Plastic waste accrues. We collect it, at best outdoors. In Germany we separate waste, use the yellow rubbish bin or the yellow bag. There’s no lack in ecological awareness – and Germany is leading the pack in this respect. Everybody is talking about “recycling”. And yet: Over the past decades, politicians and the waste industry have not managed to get a complete grip on it. Previous systems also were and remain lucrative. But this is now changing due to the drop in oil prices: even recycling valuable plastic waste is yielding less and less. And then there are the many hybrid plastics, e.g. food packaging, which until now - making little ecological sense - is simply burnt. The solution is: Turning plastic waste back into the raw material oil. This could reclaim nearly 65 percent of plastic waste to repeat the cycle once again.
  • 1,000 kg of plastic waste become about 850 litres of valuable oil!
