  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date July 12, 2018
From United Kingdom
Maturity stage TRL 7 - Prototype testing in the real world

Usually, recycling of plastics like cookie packets and food trays is not economically viable, causing them to be discarded into environment. However, RT700's patented machine chemically breaks down these hard to recycle plastics into Plaxx®, an oil that can be used for new plastic production, as well as fuels and waxes. Modular and self-contained, RT700 can be adapted to the needs of each waste site and mass manufacturing will enable rapid global roll-out.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Significant reduction of emissions compared to “Energy from Waste” alternative: 2.3 tonnes of CO2 reduction for each tonne of oil produced.
  • Targets residual plastic which cannot currently be recycled in an economically viable way.
  • Modular and self contained; multi-product capability and tailoring to local needs.
  • 85% thermal efficiency. Fuelled from processed residual plastic gases with opportunity to utilise renewable heat and further recycle plastic derived gases No water used No noxious emissions.

The Financial Benefits

  • Reduced capital cost thanks to mass-manufacturing
  • High return on investment without the need for external subsidies.
  • Less than 3 years payback.
