Received waste is first mechanically sorted in a customized process in order to reach the maximum recycling levels of materials such as iron, aluminium, glass, plastics, paper, carton, etc. Then, the rejected fraction of this process becomes the new input for the next section, our Molecular Recycling technology
Using our patented technology and process, we reduce up to 92%* of the volume and recover the rejected waste in the form of hydrocarbon by-products – the largest fraction of which is permanent gas with energy value. Our system has been tested for a range of organic materials, from biomasses (grinded wood, sawdust, etc.) to plastics (including mixtures of different types of plastics), with extended experience in reject fractions from MSW recycling plants.
(* the percentage of waste recovered can reach 100%, which we have achieved in several industrial waste treatment cases)
Once by-products and gas are separated, both go through a “cleaning” process that optimizes the energy recovery based on the outputs required by the client. The by-products and gas obtained may have several applications. The process has been optimized and it is extremely efficient in terms of heat demand. Our initial aim is to use the obtained energy based on a circular economy model.
The system is completely adaptable to the type of waste that needs to be treated – waste that otherwise would go to landfills or be incinerated. This flexibility provides the client with several opportunities to maximize the energy recovery and by-product retrieval from the process. Electricity production will be based on micro-turbines or generators depending on the amount of waste and the needs of the client.
