Plastic Waste 2 Plastic Conference welcomes Promeco as Exhibitor
Promeco manufactures plants and equipment on proprietary technology for plastic waste recycling and recovery since 1996.
Promeco has developed the chemical recycling with the catalytic conversion of mixed plastic waste into liquid fuel and the mechanical recycling to produce plastic pellet granule.
Besides the historical Promeco-patented equipment, like single and double shafts shredders, extruders, densifiers, briquetting machines, separators, squeezers and centrifuges, the Company offers a wide range of turn-key plants, among which:
- briquetting and pelletizing plants
- shredding plants
- plants for RDF production
- plants for the production of second raw material and finished products
- plants for recycling of post-consumer plastic waste
- plant for the catalytic conversion of mixed plastic waste into liquid fuel
- plants for recycling of waste pulper
- plants for wood fiber production from green waste and biomass fiber
- plants for the pretreatment of the organic matter of MSW for anaerobic digestion
The Plastic Waste 2 Plastic Conference is all about turning waste plastic via pyrolysis /chemical recycling into new plastics competing with plastics made from virgin fossil oil. This requires that current recycling value chains change to a new sustainable ecosystem. As a result the creation of innovative new ecosystems will be a challenge with so many stakeholders.
The new ecosystems contains the following steps in the materials cycle:
- End of life Plastic Waste Stream Collection
- Cleaning, Sorting and Separation
- Chemical recycling
- Thermal and Thermochemical recycling / Pyrolysis
- Processing of recycled materials (plastics and chemicals)
- Production of recycled plastic materials
- Reuse of the newly created plastics in applications
- End of life plastic waste stream collection
Besides the development of a new ecosystem, additional topics are related and relevant for the success of this new ecosystem:
- Can chemical recycling become economically viable?
- Can chemical recycling be cost-competitive with virgin plastic?
- What is the demand for the chemical recycling outputs of the different recycling processes?
- What are the real environmental and health impacts of the different recycling processes when operating at scale?
- How do the Life Cycle Assessments of the different recycle technologies compare
- What key parameters determine the choice for chemical versus mechanical recycling
- Can this type of recycling become complementary to the other waste management processes. What needs to happen to make this possible?
