If you're on this page, it's likely you're aware that the world has a plastic problem. The amount of plastic we've produced since 1950 outweighs all the humans on earth — by more than 100x.
Our modular plastic-to-fuel technology uses the process of pyrolysis to turn plastic waste into ultra-low sulfur biodegradable diesel fuel. Our process can convert all 7 types of plastic, even those that are not typically recyclable.
Researchers at Argonne National Lab found reductions of up to 14% in greenhouse gas emissions, up to 58% in water consumption, and up to 96% in traditional energy use when Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel was developed via pyrolysis.
We'll employ families in low-income communities in the developing world to collect plastic locally. Collecting one bale of plastic per day yields $600 in monthly income. That's 3.5x higher than the highest poverty threshold ($5.50/day). About 60 families will be supported by one of our modular plastic-to-fuel units.
“PTF (Plastics-to-Fuel) technology is a viable waste management alternative that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with waste management and the mass of waste sent to landfills (or ending up in the ocean)"
