Lack of clear definitions in the issues related to “RECYCLING” has for many years created misunderstandings and confusion in the industry.

A general perception is still that the term recycling is identical to mechanical recycling (including reusing), both based on a separation process, where everything must be put into different waste streams…
– This is neither viable nor sustainable that so much of the waste (especially textile residues) ends up in landfills or sent for incineration.

In order to succeed in achieving set climate goals, the market needs access to alternatives to mechanical recycling, as it has its limitations and is both time-consuming and expensive.

“Feedstock Recycling”, a broader form of “Chemical Recycling” must be seen as an sustainable alternative, it is one of the most profitable and flexible recycling solutions on the market, seen from both input material (feedstock) and end products.

Swestep offers a Game Changing Catalytic Conversion Process (“Feedstock Recycling Technology”) that can recycle all hydrocarbon based waste into a Fossil Free, CO2 Neutral Synthetic Oil. A solution where fossil-dependent industries can become fossil-independent in a viable environmental and profitable way.

FASHION FACTS – Fast fashion makes shopping for clothes more affordable, but it comes at an environmental cost, and a large share of the 150 billion garments that are produced each year go to waste.
– The fashion industry produces 10% of all humanity’s carbon emissions
– Is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply
– And pollutes the oceans with micro plastics.
– So, time for change
– Time to take the next step

See waste as an asset that can turn a global problem into a circular asset for the creation of a truly fossil-independent and sustainable society

In order to create viable conditions for sustainable climate transition to a true fossils independent society we must be realistic from both an economic and environmental perspective.

All alternatives regarding area of ​​use (From energy and fuel to performance chemicals) must be considered before making a decision on what to support and prioritize by decision-makers.

In order for our natural environment to be in balance, a functioning biological diversity is required where soil, vegetation and wildlife are allowed to live in harmony with humanity.

The focus should therefore be on stopping the depletion of mother earth resources; assets and raw materials for the production of consumer goods and energy.

  • Waste is today a global problem that can replace the world’s fossil dependence by refining it into an asset. It is neither sustainable nor defensible to incinerate waste or pile it up in landfills. (The world supply of waste as a raw material / feedstock is today as large as the world’s oil resources).

“Synthetic oil and fuels have become an important way of achieving carbon neutral utilization for a sustainable and circular society”.

SWESTEP has developed a Catalytic Conversion recycling technology (Feedstock Recycling and Energy Recovery) that mimics nature’s own decomposition process. The CC Process offers a fossil-independent alternative where only hydrocarbon-based waste and residues are used as feedstock / input material for the production of fuel, energy and a chemical raw material to be processed into performance chemicals.

SWESTEP’s end products are renewable synthetic oil / fuels, (For energy or / and fuel for the entire transport sector – Air, Land and Sea)
A synthetic raw oil that can be refined into performance chemicals as a fossil-free alternative to the entire Petrochemical industry sector.

Swestep offers a “Sustainable Game Changer” where we can stop depleting our earth’s resources and turn waste into high value assets.

SWESTEP – Next Generation Recycling Technology

No more Talking – Time for Action

The definition of recycling needs to be expanded and made more inclusive and accessible.

In order for the industry to be motivated to take its recycling responsibility, everything must be simplified in accordance with producer responsibility.

The market needs access to alternatives to mechanical recycling, which is today a priority, as it has its limitations and is both time-consuming and expensive. – And it is neither viable nor sustainable that so much of the waste (especially plastic residues) still ends up in landfills or sent for incineration.

“Feedstock Recycling” must be seen as an important part of the future sustainable solution. It is one of the most profitable and flexible recycling solutions on the market, seen from both input material (feedstock) and end products.

SWESTEP’s CC technology (Catalytic Conversion Process) is a feedstock recycling solution (Also known as molecular recycling or chemical recycling) that offers an efficient solution that enables the circulation of polymeric materials in both an economical and environmentally viable way.

The key difference, matched with today’s dominant cracking technology, is to go from the recycling solution “Plastic to Plastic” to “Plastic to Liquid to Plastic”.

The feedstock containing different quality of plastic material mixed with 30% biomass residue will be converted into a chemical raw material, with properties similar to those obtained from a virgin feedstock, can be refined into circular performance chemicals based on the structure, requirements and properties of the polymer product.

The end product is a chemical raw material, in liquid form, which gives the fossil-dependent industry an important piece of the puzzle/ model to gain control of the circularity from a producer responsibility perspective and also become fossil independent.

Plastic waste and residues can also be used as feedstock for “energy recovery”. Therefore it is important that the market also include “energy recovery” as an environmentally friendly form, in cases where it is used for the production of renewable synthetic fuels. SWESTEP’s patented CC technology can also deliver solutions for both the energy and fuel segment.

– Plastic could be Fantastic – If made Circular and Sustainable with clear rules, laws and requirements  about where and how it must be recycled –

The industry and decision makers have to rethink how their value plastic and polymeric products and see it as a circular material. The responsibility for producing, handling and recycling, from a product life cycle perspective – must be put on the producer. They are the ones who push prices, margin and pollutes our oceans, water and land.

PLASTIC FEEDSTOCK – Time to give plastic waste a value, price and meaning… See plastic waste and residues as a non fossil feedstock to be recycled into renewable fuels for the transport sector or virgin grade recycled material for the chemical industry to refine into performing chemicals for all fossil dependent industries.

SOLUTION PROVIDER – A SWESTEP Plant can recycle/turn all organic hydrocarbon-based waste and residues, including plastic, into renewable fuels (for Air-Land-Sea) or additives and virgin raw oils to refine into performance chemicals for the petrochemical industry. (New Raw materials that can help fossil dependent industries close the loop for future production of plastic, textile, cosmetic, medicine glue and binding materials)

SWESTEP intends to develop and roll out their technology on an industrial scale as it has the potential to:

• Recycle plastics for which there are limited other viable and effective recycling solutions and technologies today.
• Remove all undesired substances in the process.
• Produce virgin grade oils, sustainable additives and renewable fuels
• Turn biomass and solid waste/residues into valuable feedstock for the chemical industry or fuel for the transport sector.

SOLUTION PROCESS – Through the patented *CC process, plastic waste is broken down to fuels, oil or gaseous liquid products for the chemical industry. These hydrocarbon-based materials (feedstock) could replace todays fossil feedstock and be used to produce new sustainable and circular products, plastic being one segment among others.

THE CC TECHNOLOGY – A SWESTEP Plant – The Next Generation Process Technology for Sustainable Recycling Production.

The Transport Sector is in the middle of a transformation paradigm where decision-makers are negatively affected by strong lobbying activities. In order to make sustainable and long-term decisions, a holistic view is required

– The solution is closer than you think – Renewable Synthetic Fuels

Heavy vehicles have a life cycle of at least ten years, and often longer than that. The entire logistics industry faces an extensive challenge if we are unable to run vehicles on sustainable fuels for their full service life. An effective conversion is therefore both about achieving the goal of electrification but also about finding effective solutions for the least possible climate impact on the way there.

With a long-term perspective on the environment and climate, Sweden as a nation should ensure that we can use the vehicles that roll on our roads during their full life. The vision of a complete transition to electric power for heavy vehicles on our roads before 2040-2050 is greatly exaggerated.

In order to cope with the transition to greener transport on land, air and sea the public sector needs to met with a stable and secure infrastructure for heavy transport for both today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles. Otherwise we risk missing the target.

All fuel and engine alternatives must be considered before deciding what to prioritize and support by decision makers.

The choice of which road to take / decide is of utmost importance to be able to make a sustainable transition to a fossil-independent transport sector and circular society.

The solution is closer than you think.
