Recycling of plastics using microwave technology

Jocelyn Doucet

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.

Xycle – The missing piece of the puzzle in solving the plastic waste problem

Xycle is ready to build its first Dutch plant to convert end-of-life plastics into high grade cracker feedstock. 20 Ktons waste plastics per annum will be converted into 18 million litres liquid hydrocarbons (pyrolysis oil).
The Business is based on proven technology (TRL-level 9) and is operational on various sites in Asia.

Circular Plastics – Options, Threats and Opportunities for the European Petrochemicals and Plastics Industry

circular

Decarbonization and circular economy – the two megatrends – are reshaping the European petrochemicals and plastics Industry. The presentation will share insights on how these two megatrends are influencing and reshaping the European and Dutch petrochemicals and plastics industries. The insights have significant relevance for the Dutch chemical clusters. The talk will share the 2030 scenarios on plastics production and consumption flows in the Netherlands with potential opportunities, risks, and scale of different recycling technologies – mechanical, pyrolysis, gasification, dissolution, etc.

Designing plastics packaging for chemical recycling

by Christine Leveque, Director Business Innovation, Suez

There is a a widespread belief that Chemical Recycling processes allow to recycle the mechanically unrecyclable mixed polymer packaging. However thermo-chemical processes like Pyrolysis also need quality feedstock to produce quality oil !

The presentation will explain why it is essential for the circularity of plastics to continue the industry efforts in redesigning multi-polymers into mono-polymer packaging.
