Plastics-To-Fuel Facilities Generate Low Emissions per Recent Report

WASHINGTON (July 25, 2017) – A new report that examined emissions from a family of technologies known as pyrolysis has determined that emissions from these processes are likely to be very low—much lower than the emissions profiles from other industries, such as food processing, auto manufacturing, and even lower than institutional buildings, such as hospitals […]

Plastics News: Research Says Plastics-To-Fuel Technology Reduces Greenhouse Gases

By Jim Johnson, Plastics News Using pyrolysis to convert unrecycled plastics into ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel stacks up favorably to similar fuel made from crude oil, new research shows. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory compared the creation of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel created from the plastics-to-fuel process to traditional crude oil. Research […]

Plastics to Fuel: The Next Green Machine

Why do plastics have an intrinsic value as a fuel source? Plastics are created primarily from energy feedstocks, typically natural gas or oil (mostly natural gas in the United States). The hydrocarbons that make up plastics are embodied in the material itself, essentially making plastics a form of stored energy, which can be turned into […]
