PLASTICS & FUEL CONVERSION
We have seen the huge accumulation of plastics around the globe especially in water bodies, land etc., causing enormous damage to the environment, people and all living things in this universe. It is a huge challenge for the current and future generations to come, as an act of social responsibility and to conserve the natural resources present in this earth, there are lot of techniques introduced to recycle and produce energy out of the waste that is generated.
One more sustainable technology developed in this fuel conversion challenge is thermo mechanical de-polymerisation plant. The thermo-mechanical de-polymerization plant, produces hydrocarbon condensate, recovered carbon black and other marketable products from hydrocarbon-based waste material including waste tires and rubbers and mixed waste PP, PE and PEX plastics.
The plant transforms the post use-phase tires or plastics into usable basic hydrocarbons named crude hydrocarbon condensate to be used as feedstock for chemical plants and refineries as well as carbon rich char to produce recovered carbon black and recovered steel.
The effective advantages of this system is:
- Minimal area requirement.
- Capacity can be altered over a period of time.
- Better thermal output.
- Less downtime.
- Zero discharge
The control systems are highly integrated and can be monitored at remote locations. The parameters are saved centrally and for analysis in the future to enhance performance. An advanced fire protection is provided, very less environmental impacts as it is in an enclosure, proper ventillation is provided to collect dust.
The outputs of the systems are as follows:
Hydrocarbon condensate, Non-condensable gases, Carbon Char and recovered carbon black, Steel.
