Recycling of plastics using microwave technology

In this presentation, we will highlight the benefits of using our revolutionary microwave-based platform to recycle plastics in a more efficient way than any other thermal based technologies. We will show how microwaves make higher yields of better quality output while being a fraction of the size of other technologies for the same throughput. The compactness and modularity of our solution will show superiority of our technology in terms of commercial attractiveness.

The breakthrough innovations developed by our group will be presented as well as provide some updated on our commercial projects, including our European flagship commercial project with Michelin.

A presentation by Jocelyn Doucet, CEO at Pyrowave.


Question 1: What drives you?
Making better products with lower carbon footprint

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
The circular economy of plastic is a growing topic and we offer a breakthrough technological platform to recycle plastic waste. Delegates will find this presentation attractive by opening up to a new way of recycling plastics with the most advanced technological platform.

Question 3: What emerging technologies / trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Electrification of everything is the future of industry. Our microwave-based platform is a great example of how we can use electricity to make better products with lower carbon footprint

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
We expect new technologies to make things better with lower carbon and environmental impacts.

Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
The resistance to change is the key barrier.
