Plastic is Fantastic…
If made Circular and Sustainable with clear rules, laws and requirements about where/how it must be recycled
Today, most of all plastic waste goes to incineration and only a minor part is mechanically recycled. In addition, mechanical material recycling gives plastics a lower quality than the original.
Therefore, it is important to highlight feedstock recycling as a justifiable and profitable alternative for industry to produce green plastic products with guaranteed quality that meet the sustainability and environmental requirements.
Swestep’s CC Process is an efficient method for plastic recycling, the waste can be broken down at molecular level and deliver an oil product that can be refined into performance chemicals and/or new optional plastic products that meets the industry quality requirements.
– Another advantage of Swestep’s technology is that it also allows a gradual phase-out of fossil dependence.
Plastic waste recycling is poised to be the most important and transformative trend in the petrochemicals industry during the coming decade. Replacing plastic with other materials is not practical. When considering all aspects of the product lifecycle, plastics have a much lower environmental cost than their alternative materials.
So, while opportunities exist to reduce per capita plastic consumption, the solution to plastic waste must include the ongoing use of plastics for their superior material properties.
The end products are renewable fuels, energy and/or a chemical raw material (in liquid form) that can be processed into performance chemicals and new materials for all fossil-dependent industries.
Important to emphasize is that Swestep’s patented CC process (Catalytic Conversion Process) mimic natures decay process, but in contrast to that it takes nature millions of years Swestep’s solution do it under 6 minutes.
The technology is a combined feedstock-, chemical-, and mechanical recycling process that can recycle all hydrocarbon-based waste and residues. (Including contaminated waste, end of life products and flame retardant material)
INFORMATION – The CC process is NOT an incineration technology – There are no chimneys; Thanks to that the production process runs under 300°C there are no cancerogenic (Furans, dioxins…) emissions produced.
Time to take the next step
Time for change
