EUREX ECO 1 unit

The EUREX ECO 1 unit and the technology of processing mixed plastic materials from municipal and industrial waste represent the thermal processing of polymer waste without air access, which takes place
continuously, while the main product is a continuously collected mixture of fission products in a gaseous state. These are subsequently condensed and obtained from them in distillation equipment liquid
hydrocarbons that can be used as diesel and gasoline fractions.
It is therefore a chemical recycling of plastic waste, the output of which is obtaining a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons, which can be used as a raw material for the petrochemical industry or as a substitute for liquid fuels obtained by oil processing. It is not a process of incinerating plastic waste as a means to obtain energy.

EUREX ECO 1,chemical recycling technology

The process of thermal treatment of plastic waste is a continuous process that requires regular addition of
plastic material and removal of decomposition products (heavy fraction) without shutdown and cooling of
the reactor.
The EUREX ECO 1 unit is designed to ensure the stability of the temperature and homogeneity of the
overheating of the processed plastic waste in the entire volume of the reactor and thus the homogeneity of the output products, which can be used in the petrochemical industry as chemical substances or can be
used as secondary fuels.

Technology - Eurex ECO 01

Eurex ECO 01 is a device based on the depolymerization process, which converts plastic waste based on PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene) with a mixture of other plastic waste max. up to 5% during the thermal transformation to medium mineral oil, light mineral oil, gas and solid residue.

Technological capability of the EUREX EKO 01 device

During its operation, the device recovers plastic waste based mainly on PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene), other waste plastics up to 5% by weight, which is converted into fuel in two liquid fractions (light - so-called gasoline and medium - the so-called diesel fraction), one gas fraction and a solid residue. The processing is based on the principle of mechanical and chemical-thermal degradation.

Material efficiency of the process = 89%
Process energy efficiency = 87%
Energy intensity (total) = 12.9%
Energy intensity (foreign sources) = 7.1%
400 kg waste plastic / 80% PE, 20% PP / = 3900 kW
320 l recycled (256 kg) + 36 m3 sygas (50 kg) = 3500 kW
