TECHNOLOGY

One of three proven technologies in the world for converting waste plastic into standardized fuel.

  • Patented autonomous reboiler with a distillation column for the decomposition of hydrocarbons with chains longer than C24 without recycling to the reactor
  • Fractionating column with a patented set of Bialecki rings and demisters
  • Innovative fractionating column resistant to variable loads and fractional composition
  • Process gas cleaning system – emissions from gas combustion on a natural gas level
  • Process control system compliant with Advanced Process Control
  • Continuous process feasibility – 8,000 h/year without interruption
  • Capacity from 7,000 to 15,000 tonnes of plastic waste a year

THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP

All elements of the PETREL installation are designed using advanced engineering software which guarantees the highest process efficiency and safety (including numerical modelling). The use of the newest programs allows the process to be maintained at the highest technological level, unprecedented on a global scale, with plastic pyrolysis.

The PETREL process

The world’s no. 1 in the conversion of waste to liquid fuels.

As part of its research and development project, the company has created a technological process, unique on a global scale, which enables the manufacture of superior quality products.
Petrel has commercialised the technology for converting plastic waste to heating oil and light distillate, based on the pyrolysis process. Its uniqueness is confirmed by the feasibility of continuous processing and the final parameters of PETREL products.

LOOKING AFTER THE ENVIRONMENT

PEOPLE WHO ARE CHANGING OUR PLANET

Each year, at least 8 million tonnes of plastics leak into the ocean. […] The best research currently available estimates that there are over 150 million tonnes of plastics in the ocean today. In a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain 1 tonne of plastic for every 3 tonnes of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish (by weight).

Ellen MacArthur Foundation and McKinsey & Company

Over the past few years, plastics-to-fuel (PTF) technologies have emerged as one potential solution to reducing plastic marine litter and the landfilling of end-of-life plastics.[…] PTF technologies can not only help address this global challenge and mitigate the flow of plastic to the ocean, but can also create jobs and generate an alternative local fuel source that can serve as a substitute to fossil fuel derived crude oil.

Ocean Recovery Alliance

The damage to sea life is staggering: at least one million seabirds, and hundreds of thousands of marine mammals die each year due to the pollution. Even worse, the survival of many species, like the Hawaiian Monk Seal and Loggerhead Turtle, is directly jeopardized by plastic debris.
