The two ways to make use out of plastic-waste

by Prof. Dr. Gernot K Brueck, CEO of Plasma Power BV and Plasma Power Holding BV

Long molecules chains of PE and PP can be cut down to usable chemicals like olefins, naphtha and paraffin. This cracking procedure needs defined temperatures which only can be realized with contact-heat. Such a system was realized and finds worldwide interest.

Totally mixed plastic has to be treated with high temperature to dissolve the molecules entirely into the atomic state to generate pure syngas and from there various ways are possible. To go towards plastic just olefins have to be produced.

The focuses on turning waste plastic via pyrolysis /chemical recycling into new plastics competing with plastics made from virgin fossil oil. This will change the current recycling value chain into a new sustainable ecosystem.

The new ecosystems contains the following steps in the materials cycle:

  • End of life Plastic Waste Stream Collection
  • Cleaning, Sorting and Separation
  • Recycling
    • Chemical recycling
    • Thermal and Thermochemical recycling / Pyrolysis
  • Processing of recycled materials (plastics and chemicals)
  • Production of recycled plastic materials
  • Reuse of the newly created plastics in applications
  • End of life plastic waste stream collection
