As we know, plastics are usually made up of polymers and often created from petroleum products, in other words, plastic is made from crude oil extracted from under the ground and can be turned into diesel fuel by pyrolysis technology.
White pollution caused by waste plastic is facing by each country in the world. Landfill and plastic material recovery have been widely used as the way of waste plastic management. There is a problem with landfill, as it can take up to 450 years for plastic to break down (to biodegrade), which cannot really solve the plastic pollution problem.
Plastic material recovery is mainly through pelleting. Waste plastic should be sorted, cleaned, shredded and palletized before returning to the production channel at the mixing or manufacturing stage. Only few plastic is suitable for pelleting, so this way cannot effectively manage waste plastic.
By contrast, turn plastic into diesel fuel will be a better solution to waste plastic and it is also the one with best economical benefit. You know, 5% of extracted oil from under the ground is used for the production of plastic materials, 90% of which form part of 5 types of plastics such as PE(polyethylene), PP(polypropylene), PVC(polyvinyl-chloride), PET(Polyethylene terephtalate ) and PS (polystyrene ). Plastic in its raw state is made up of a range of organic polymers, after thermo decomposition, the plastic polymers can be broken into smaller carbon chain which is fuel oil. After further refinery, plastic fuel oil can be converted into plastic diesel as a diesel substitute used for industrial heating, vehicles and generators,etc.
Turn plastic waste into diesel fuel
Our waste plastic to diesel fuel plant can turn waste plastic into diesel fuel, and the waste plastic no need to be selected or cleaned, the whole process is safe and environmental friendly. We have provided solution to government and paper mills for garbage plastic processing and meanwhile turn plastic waste into diesel.
