Plastic waste conversion is the transformation of plastic waste into usable sustainable products. Depending on the waste plastic composition and level of contaminations, the plastic feedstock could be effectively converted into high-value products through pyrolysis, gasification, and steam reformation. If the plastic feedstock is clean and has an appropriate composition, pyrolysis can be applied to depolymerize plastic and convert it mostly into liquid fuel. Gasification and steam reformation technologies are more suitable for contaminated plastic waste conversion into high-energy value syngas and hydrogen. In addition, syngas can be converted into liquid fuels and green chemicals utilizing the gas-to-liquid catalytic process.
A plastic waste expert has knowledge and experience in plastic chemistry, waste conversion technologies (e.g., pyrolysis, gasification, steam reformation, gas-to-liquid processes), scrubbing/ cleaning systems, and produced energy product applications. This expert can help companies reduce their environmental impact by finding ways to convert plastic waste into useful products. This could include finding ways to recycle plastic waste into new products or finding ways to use plastic waste as a fuel source. The expert can also help companies develop strategies to reduce their plastic waste output and create more sustainable practices. The plastic waste conversion expert can provide technical due diligence on a plastic waste conversion project for investors and assist developers in evaluating the processed feedstock, selecting the right conversion technology, research and development, and in designing and building a plant to convert plastic waste into the desired products.
