Every year, approximately 500 billion pounds of plastic is manufactured across the globe. How to turn plastic into fuel to tackle the problem of mounting plastic waste has been an urgent topic now. As a professional waste recycling plant manufacturer and supplier with over 18 years’ experience, Beston Machinery has developed the latest plastic to fuel conversion plant with advanced technology, perfect production process and mature devices, which can turn plastic into fuel through a series of reactions.
Turn plastic into fuel – pyrolysis process
Feed waste plastic materials into reactor by auto feeder or manual; then heat the reactor. The temperature of the reactor will rise slowly. When the temperature reaches 250℃, there will be oil gas generating gradually. The oil gas then enters condensing system and becomes liquid oil. The gas which can’t be liquefied will be designed to go back to combustion system, which is recycled to heat the reactor as fuel. After finishing oil production, the temperature will be cooled down. When the temperature falls down to 40℃, the carbon black can be discharged automatically or by manual.
Wide applications of the end products:
|Plastic oil||1. Can be widely used as industrial fuel materials for burning.
2. If further refined to diesel or gasoline by oil distillation machine, the oil can be used in low speed engines such as digging machine, road roller or loading machine, etc.
3. It can help in relieving energy crisis.
|Carbon black||1. The carbon black can be used for construction bricks with clay or used as fuel.
2. If further processed by Beston carbon black processing plant, the carbon black can be deep processed into N220, N330 Carbon black, which has higher value and wider applications.
3. It can be made into pellet or briquette for burning, or further processed into color master batch as basic material to make pipes, cable jacket etc.
