Recycling Plastic


Published on

Waste plastic problem is an ever-increasing menace for global environment. Because of flexibility, durability and economy, a phenomenal rise is observed in the plastic consumer base. Throughout the world, research on waste plastic management is being carried out at war-footing. Plastics being non biodegradable get accumulated in the environment. If this problem is not addressed properly, it will lead to mountains of waste plastic. Being an official out sourcing agent for a leading industry in the country, we offer a state of art solution to this problem.

Recycling Plastic

  1. 1. Polymer Energy ™ Wealth out of Waste plastic
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><ul><ul><li>Current Method of waste plastic disposal </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Polymer Energy technology Plastics quality </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Industries </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Process details </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>End product quality </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Advantages </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Status of Current Installations </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Conclusions </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Present state
  4. 5. Land fill <ul><ul><ul><li>It takes 1000 to 1 million years for polyethylene bags and waste to break down </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• As polyethylene breaks down, toxic substances leach into the soil and enter the food chain, thus Become 100% Non-Green area </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Keep occupying land Plastic bag choke landfills </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• On the other hand, Land is a limited resource </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Naturally landfill becomes a costlier proposition. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 6. Incineration <ul><ul><ul><li>1 Kg of polyethylene produces 3.20 kg of Carbon dioxide </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• It is one of the worst form air pollution </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Also boosts the global warming </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• So it is not fair to considered as a right way of disposal </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 8. Polymer equipment
  7. 9. Polymer Energy can process Plastic Waste <ul><li>From the following industries </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Paper industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Refinery </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Food industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Chemical industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Building industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Automotive industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Hi-tech industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Electric industry </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 10. Waste plastic quality <ul><li>The installation can process: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>PE, PP (polyolefin's)-both industrial & municipal waste </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other plastics –car bumpers & computer cases </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Key highlight of the system <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The system is designed to process the following types of plastic waste Polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE & HDPE), and Polypropylene </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Up to 5% of other types of plastic tolerated </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The reactor can tolerate contaminants such as </li></ul><ul><li>glass, paper, soil, metals, and moisture. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A modular design allows for easy installation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>and plant expansion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capacity of each module is typically 350 tons of waste plastic per month </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Output of each module is approximately 720 liters per ton of waste plastic processed </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 12. Operating characteristics (1) <ul><ul><ul><li>Plastic wastes after preliminary segregation, if necessary, (paper, glass, metal elements), are manually loaded with catalyst into press machine </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• 3-5 kg of feed can by loaded at one time, 300 kg/hour, 180 ton/month </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Pressed wastes are transported directly to the reactor </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• There is constant high temperature in the reactor </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Plastic wastes are depolymerized </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Each reactor has its own heat supply – burner for gas, oil, biomass </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• There is molten metal inside the reactor which keeps high temperature </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Catalyst speeds up depolymerization process </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 13. Operating characteristics (2) <ul><ul><ul><li>As a result of depolimerization process gaseous hydrocarbons go to cooling system </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• The part of gaseous hydrocarbons (C1-C4) goes back to the heating system </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Hydrocarbons from C5 and higher in liquid state form final product </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Final product – mixture of hydrocarbons – is pumped to the tank (volume 45-60 m3) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Installation works constantly – 24 hours </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Installation has self cleaning system </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• Final solid waste in the form of bitumen equivalent </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 14. Final product <ul><li>Final product is a mixture of: </li></ul><ul><li>20% gasoline range product </li></ul><ul><li>50% diesel range product </li></ul><ul><li>30% heavy fractions </li></ul><ul><li>The mixture is sold to the refinery for processing </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>90C – 190C gasoline fraction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>190C – 330C diesel fraction </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>more than 330C – paraffin </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 15. Polymer Equipment – Dual Reactors

  15. 17. Certification
  16. 18. Conclusion <ul><ul><ul><li>• Polymer Energy technology can be effectively utilized to convert input plastic wastes from the industry to value added fuel. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• It is a commercially viable alternative to incineration, landfill disposal and recycling. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• The system does not produce large amounts of secondary waste, emissions or poisonous byproducts such as sulphur compounds, phosphorus, arsenic or heavy metals. </li></ul></ul></ul>
