Hydrochemolytic™ Plastics Upcycling
SORTED AND UNSORTED WASTE PLASTIC TO FUELS AND CHEMICALS
– A water-based chemical conversion process
– Operates at relatively low severity conditions
– Allows selective promotion and control of the chemistries applicable to different types of plastic
– Permits reimagining of a comprehensive approach to all families of the polymers in waste plastics
Converting waste plastic to a new-era resource in the circular economy
HPU can be configured to achieve environmentally-responsible upcycling of diverse materials such as end-of-life plastic and tire rubber that most commonly are landfilled or incinerated. When these materials are transformed into diesel, each barrel eliminates the need to produce and refine a barrel of crude oil.
Products from the application of HPU can in some cases be converted into higher-value platform chemicals including solvents and alkylaromatics. Other possibilities include specialty chemicals that can be used in consumer products including detergents, lubricants, paints, foams, coatings, and sealants. Importantly, some plastics can even be converted into feed for naphtha crackers that produce the starting materials for polyethylene and polypropylene to actually realize the goal of the circular economy.
Through its ability to transform plastics and rubber into a resource, HPU provides the world an important option for efficiently eliminating the scourge of plastics on land and in oceans that is the hallmark of this Anthropocene epoch.
