More Commercial Reference Plants Built Than Any Other Vendor
Klean’s pyrolysis plant converts waste plastics into high grade diesel fuel. The systems use a continuous liquefaction technology alongside a unique catalytic breakdown process that turns waste materials into gases and liquids. The end products can be used in any standard diesel engine or generator with little or no modifications.
Klean uses pyrolysis fuel technologies are based on new approaches to chemical processing that are generally referred to as chemical process intensification. Chemical process intensification involves accelerating the rate of a chemical process in order to reduce processing time while also reducing energy and material requirements and increasing product quality.
Process intensification often produces additional advantages such as reduced volumes of waste product, manufacturing flexibility, scalability and other benefits arising from intelligent engineering and improved process control. Klean’s pyrolysis plant has new reactors are commercially proven and based on operating plants, that are multi-functional, smaller, inherently safer and more energy efficient than traditional process equipment. Our chemistry has been perfected to ensure the highest possible financial yields.
The major advantage of the process is its ability to handle a range of waste plastics and its extremely high efficiency. Other normally hard to recycle plastics such as laminates of incompatible polymer, multilayer films or polymer mixtures can also be processed with ease unlike in conventional plastics recycling techniques. In fact, most plastics can be processed directly, even if contaminated with dirt, laminates and residues.
- Plastics to Oil technology reduces the volume of waste that is sent to landfills;
- The Company’s process not only eliminates the emission of harmful gases that are attributed to plastic incineration, but the process itself releases next to zero emissions by virtue of its closed-loop process;
- Plastics to Oil provides an economic renewable alternative to virgin-based materials produced from natural hydrocarbons.
Social and political considerations:
- Contrary to previous initiatives spurred by spikes in commodity prices, the movement to recover valuable products and energy from waste is representative of a paradigm shift;
- There has been an increase in attention paid to emission standards as evidenced by the Kyoto protocol, the advent of carbon credit trading, and the resulting increase in value and volume of carbon credits traded; and,
- Plastics to Oil’s technology will help reduce the global reliance on oil by producing diesel fuel – domestically.
