Hydrocarbon based fuels remain a foundation of today’s economy.  Likewise, plastic and rubber based products are not going away anytime soon due to continued R&D that yields lighter, more durable and cost effective materials for production.  The waste stream grows more complex as consumer products, packaging, industrial by-products and construction waste are co-mingled during collection and transport. One positive step exists today towards reducing the massive volume of polymer based waste entering local and overseas landfills: adoption of Renewable Energy Solutions by Polyflow as the recycling solution for difficult to process plastic and rubber waste.  Not only is the amount of waste entering landfills dramatically reduced when fully deployed, RES Polyflow presents an ambitious opportunity for new fuels and chemical building blocks to be manufactured on site through waste diversion.  As a hyperlocal, closed loop process, implementation of the RES Polyflow technology at scale allows for:

  • New job creation in the renewable energy field
  • Extended life spans for permitted landfills
  • Reduced reliance on foreign sources of crude oil and natural gas
  • Higher adoption rates for single stream recycling programs (residential, commercial, industrial)
  • Established recycling facilities to focus on higher value material recovery
  • A reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by over 70% when compared to energy generation via incineration of plastics
