Plastics and Packaging to Clean Energy

ocean waste

Plastics and Packaging Materials are all around us! It has become a significant issue threatening our oceans, beaches, and ecosystems. While a certain percentage can be used for recycling, it has become apparent that plastic recycling currently merely is not working. Buying new plastic is so much cheaper than labor-intensive recycling. After China banned the import of plastics, other countries all over South East Asia are following suit and leaving no easy way to move western plastic waste to developing countries. Technically we are now left with a limited number of options landfilling being the most common.

The Entrade-X Redo(X) Reactor System is designed to work with a large variety of fuel sources, regardless of the different combustion characteristics. Plastics and Packaging materials are a dry fuel with high calorific value and therefore perfectly usable for Gasification. Since Plastics and Packaging materials convert super fast within the Redo(X) Reactor, it is therefore not possible to use 100% plastics, for example. There always needs to be a mixture of 75% other carbon-based fuels.

Benefits of using Plastics and Packaging Materials as Fuel:

  • Cost Savings from not having to transport and dispose of the Fuel

  • Great Free On-Site Energy Source to replace fossil fuels

  • High Fuel to Balance Solar Energy in Rural Areas

  • Very little pre-processing available.

  • Reduction in Transportation Cost.

  • Reduce Pollution from Landfills and Waste Dumps-

  • Treat Ocean Plastic Waste right on-site

Challenges:

  • Low Energy Density

  • NOx issues are combustion gets above 1300 Degrees Celsius

  • Chlorine

  • Mixing with other Fuel Sources is Necessary

The Available Process:

Currently, the Redo(X) Reactor System is being tested with several fuel mixtures that contain plastic and packaging. We are confident to offer a Solution for the coming months.
