  8. 8. / Repsol Technology Lab 3.WASTETOINDUSTRY Why Waste to Industry? The World tends to a Circular Economy system. As little waste in landfill as possible. REPSOL could be part of the solution. We need to reduce the CO2 emissions of our global activity. Using waste from plastic and biological origin as a raw material we contribute to reduce CO2 emissions in our productive processes and the carbon footprint of our final products.
  9. 9. / Repsol Technology Lab 3.WASTETOINDUSTRY Value chain The products from these process technologies can, in some cases, be used directly as final products, while others require further processing in upgrading units. The integration of these products with our sites require as well a technical development. Raw materials Process technologies Final Products The raw materials for the production of low-emission products are lipids, plastic wastes, end-of-life tyres, textile wastes, municipal solid wastes, residual gases and biomass. The availability of this waste is limited in the case of end-of-life tyres, plastic wastes, textile wastes and lipids, being higher for municipal solid waste, residual gases and biomass. Not all raw materials have the same facility for processing, due to their composition, heterogeneity and pollutants. Currently, the most mature technologies are: the fermentation of biomass, transesterification and the hydrogenation of waste lipids. Other technologies that can process other wastes (like plastic, municipal solid wastes or biomass) have to reach higher level of technological development. Some of these raw materials, like biomass or organic fraction from MSW, can be valorized to biogas instead of bioliquids. Technological challenges are articulated over raw materials, process technologies and final products.
  10. 10. / Repsol Technology Lab 3.WASTETOINDUSTRY Raw materials Biosmass Residual biomass of different possible origins: • Forestry residues • Agricultural residues High humidity content, Requires pre-treatment Origin and type of residues varies with location. Refuse derived fuel (RDF) Alternative fossil fuel from non-hazardous commercial waste in compliance with the European standard EN 15359. Includes variable % of plastic waste and biodegradable organic fraction (including organic waste, paper, carton, textile). Higher potential of production (now sent to landfill). Organic fraction of MSW Organic fraction obtained from municipal solid waste. High variability of composition High humidity content, Waste lipids Quality of waste lipids varies depending on the origin and process where they come from. Important source for biofuel production. For biofuel production it must be validated for each kind of waste (for example: UCO, PFAD, corn oil, etc.) Plastic Waste Plastic waste of high quality from Plastic Mix and Plastic film fraction: • Agricultural waste plastic • Industrial waste plastic • MSW Plastic Low biomass content Low contaminant content (compare to RDF) Could be competition with mechanical recycling End of life tires (ELT) End of life tires use to be send to landfill. 25% of the tire has a biological origin (natural Rubber).

  18. 18. / Repsol Technology Lab 8.WRAP-UP In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions different low carbon alternative technologies must be developed and applied. Renewable generation and energy storage • Renewable generation is a key player to ensure decarbonization. Its rapidly growth must be accompanied by other technologies to overcome intermittency and non-dispatchable issues. • Renewable energy storage will allow balancing generation and demand to maximize a sustainable electricity system. Waste to industry • New technologies allow the use of several raw materials, such as waste from plastic and biological origin, in modified refineries to produce biofuels. • This can be doubly beneficial as it uses raw materials that have absorbed CO2 and eliminates garbage. Hydrogen • Hydrogen can help decarbonize several sectors such as industry, mobility and heat. As well, as an energy vector, it can be use to store renewable electricity. • Advantages in green hydrogen production are being developed, while, blue hydrogen technologies can be applied to decarbonize this sectors. CCUS • CCUS technologies enable the possibility to capture CO2 from the air and from industry off-gas to avoid emissions to the atmosphere. • Several hubs are being developed to facilitate carbon storage. E-Fuels • E-fuels combine green hydrogen and carbon capture technologies to create fuels for mobility, industry and lubricants.
