What is Plastic Pyrolysis Plant – Reduction and Recycling Solution for Plastic Waste

First of all, let’s have a general sense of this equipment. A plastic pyrolysis plant is a specialized industrial facility designed to thermally decompose plastic waste materials, such as plastic bottles, and bags, into valuable products like pyrolysis oil, syngas, and carbon black through a process called pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is a chemical reaction that occurs when organic materials, like plastics, are heated in the absence of oxygen. This process is an environmentally friendly way to reduce plastic waste and recover useful resources.

Plastic waste is a global environmental concern. Over 400 million tons of plastic are produced worldwide each year, with one-third of it being used only once. Pyrolysis plant for waste plastic thermally decomposes plastics into oil, gas, and residue at high temperatures. This process significantly reduces the volume of accumulated plastic waste, lessens the reliance on landfills and waste incineration facilities, and improves environmental quality.

For professionals looking to upcycle discarded plastic resources, plastic to oil machine is a great choice. It transforms waste plastic into valuable pyrolysis oil, which can find versatile applications in various industries. This helps reduce dependence on finite fossil fuel resources.

Selection Guide of Plastic Raw Materials to Pyrolysis

In fact, not all plastics are suitable for pyrolysis. So here is the information about acceptable and unacceptable plastic raw materials for you. Please read.

Acceptable Waste Plastic types

PE (Polyethylene);
PP (Polypropylene);
PS (Polystyrene);
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene);

Unacceptable Waste Plastic types

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate);
PVC(Polyvinyl Chloride).
NOTE: The two are unacceptable because their pyrolysis produces toxic gases and low oil yield.

Kindly reminder: Sample testing is available. If you’re unsure whether your plastic is fit for pyrolysis, you can send us intact, leak-proof samples. Each sample should have a diameter under 2cm and weigh at least 5kg per type.

Plastic Pyrolysis Oil Yield – from Different Types of Plastic

Now please take a look at the plastic pyrolysis oil yield of different types of plastics. For better oil yield, it is advisable to process a single type of plastic. PE/PP/PS are good options. Utilizing pyrolysis to process mixed plastics is also possible, but it will require more process control and separation steps.

Application Scenarios of Pyrolysis Oil

  • It can be directly used as fuel in industrial boilers, power plants, furnaces, etc. to generate heat and electricity.
  • It can be further refined into non-standard diesel.
  • It can serve as a substitute for petroleum-based raw materials in chemical manufacturing, such as resins, adhesives, and synthetic materials.

Operation Flows of Waste Plastic Pyrolysis Machine

Generally, with a dryer and crusher, moisture is removed, and large plastic items are crushed into small pieces. This helps to increase the rate of pyrolysis reaction and effectively save energy.

According to the equipment configuration, waste plastics are fed into the reactor manually or through a screw feeder/hydraulic feeder.

At temperatures ranging from 280°C to 400°C, waste plastics undergo a thermal decomposition reaction, transforming into oil-gas mixture. The heavy particles of the oil gas will be liquefied into heavy oil (mainly oil dregs) and dropped into heavy oil tank, while the light particles will rise and proceed to the next step.

The condenser system condenses the light particles of oil gas into liquid oil, that is, pyrolysis plastic oil, the main end product.

The waste smoke goes to the condenser and spray tower for dedusting, washing, water spray, ceramic ring adsorption, and activated carbon absorption. Finally, the discharged gas meets the EU emission standards.

Unique Patent – Gaseous-phase Plastic Catalytic Pyrolysis Technology

In the field of plastic pyrolysis, Beston Group has developed a unique patent, gaseous-phase plastic catalytic pyrolysis technology. The exclusive patent utilizes catalytic towers and special catalysts to break down the paraffin wax oil produced during the plastic pyrolysis process. This innovation not only enhances the quality of the pyrolysis oil but also effectively resolves the issue of wax oil blockages. If interested, please contact us anytime.

Catalyst Introduction

The catalyst is a molecular sieve catalyst primarily composed of elements such as aluminum, silicon, and magnesium. It appears as spherical particles with a diameter ranging from 6 to 13mm. The catalyst used in plastic cracking effectively addresses the problem of wax-like substances in plastics, thereby significantly improving equipment efficiency.

Catalyst Usage Instructions – Dual-catalyst system & Single-catalyst system

You can choose a dual-tower configuration or a single-tower configuration. In the dual-catalyst system, 1270 kilograms of catalyst are added in each batch, evenly distributed between the two catalytic towers. In the single-catalyst system, the catalyst is added to a single tower and does not need to be completely filled. Regardless of the configuration, the usage principles below should be followed:
Every 2-3 furnace cycles, check the Bor-Mag rings in the bottom of the catalytic towers. If necessary, replace the rings. Every 10 furnace cycles, open the catalytic tower to inspect whether the catalyst has become contaminated and turned black. If contamination is detected, please release 10 centimeters of contaminated catalyst and then add fresh catalyst. Once all the catalyst has been contaminated and released, it can be considered for regeneration and reuse.
