With our revolutionary technology, we have pioneered the development of a state-of-the art process that converts plastic waste into usable automotive grade fuels which does not require further refining, directly from unwashed, unsorted waste plastics. Our systems quickly and efficiently convert 1 kilogram of waste plastic into 1 litre of fuel.
All plastic pyrolysis plants in the world, from the most advanced to the very crude, also derive fuel from the plastic pyrolysis process. However, the fuel is good enough, mostly to burn or at the very best as furnace oil. No process in the world, which are commercially available till date, except that of Hydroxy Systems Technology, converts plastic directly in automotive grade fuels.
The plastic waste processing plant, developed completely indigenously, tested and proven for its ability for the last 3 years, is the only one of its kind in the world which can transform waste end-of-life plastic into usable automotive grade Diesel, Petrol and Kerosene in a singular process of Sublimation, Condensation and Distillation.
Hydroxy System uses its proprietary technology to convert difficult-to-recycle waste plastics into high grade fuels composed of diesel, petrol and kerosene. Hydroxy Systems indigenously developed technology heats plastic in a kiln using electricity, consequently negating the need for fossil fuels and overcoming the barrier of plastic being a poor conductor of heat, sublimating the plastic into a gaseous state which is then condensed and distilled
in anin-line distillation process into automotive grade Diesel, Petrol and Kerosene, through a process of plastic de-polymerization. The technology used has been given the nomenclature -“Non-Pyrolytic, Non-Catalytic De-Polymerization technology” and uses patent-pending algorithms to handle different kinds of plastic at one go.
The process involves no chimney, proof to the fact that there would be no gaseous effluents left into the air and the little amounts of methane (around 2%) produced during the process is used up by the generator which produces electricity used in heating the plastic.
(i) The only system in the world in the domain of waste plastic processing in which waste plastic processing happens in atmospheric pressure or at pressures less than 1 bar and consequently provides for a safe working environment unlike Pyrolysis which is essentially a pressurized system fraught with safety hazards.
(ii) The plastic waste, once it enters the kiln, is sublimated in the absence of oxygen. In fact, the entire process happens under vacuum conditions and negates any chances of a fire accident.
(i) Fuel: Depending on the kind of input plastic waste, the plant shall convert it into fuel ranging between 45% to 95%. While medical grade plastic can be converted into 95 % fuel, end of life plastic waste can be converted into at least 45 % fuel.
(ii) Activated Carbon: The process leaves a residue of activated carbon depending on the kind of input plastic waste in the range of 5% to 55%. The chemical composition of the carbon residue is as it exists naturally in the world and is activated too due to the energy supplied to it as heat. It makes for an easier alternative to chemical fertilizers and is being used as manure currently besides being used as a source of heat in lying of bitumen roads by the municipality.
