Turning industry waste into oil
Problem: Although massive investments have been made into recycling and reuse of waste, the plastics processing industry still has a large amount of waste that can only be incinerated. This results in high disposal costs for the customer and continues to generate high CO2 emissions. AES addresses exactly this problem.
Solution: Our small plants (20ft container) can recycle up to 1,000 kg of waste per day directly at the customer’s site. Through a thermal process, 75 % the waste is converted into an oil. This has a diesel-like character and is then sold to refineries. In this way, new plastics and basic chemicals can be created from the waste of the costumer.
USP: In contrast to conventional disposal in an incineration plant or cement works, the customer incurs hardly any disposal costs. These costs are between 150-400 €/t for the mentioned wastes. In addition, there are proceeds from the sale of oil of up to 850 €/t. This enables the AES plant to achieve an amortization period under 3 years.
Markets: Automobile suppliers, injection molding companies, tape manufacturers, overall plastic processing industries
