We have developed a continuous, catalyzed pyrolysis process that has a small footprint, highly efficient and produces products that have an immediate use.

With plastic, we can go where the plastic is (avoiding trucking large amounts of it to a central place), the fuel produced does not require further refining (another cost saving) and can be a profitable business even at 200 kg per day depending on the costs of labor, plastic, energy and the price of fuel.

The small footprint allows us to place our units on beaches, remote islands, river mouths, boats, ships and tackle the waste plastic collected. Only company actively trying to solve the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans
