More efficient and controllable pyrolisis powered by renewables
Zaragoza & Urbaser premises for pyrolysis technology
Plastic fraction of MSW, particularly mixes of PP, PE and PS
Microwaves-assisted pyrolysis will be tested. This technology provides a more efficient and controllable process compared to conventional pyrolysis, with the additional advantage of being powered by RES (e.g. PV) due to the electrification of the process.
To enable the recycling of plastic waste, which is currently landfilled due to technical and economic barriers.
To electrify and optimize the energy consumption of the process to achieve a full renewable approach.
To validate new approaches for plastics recycling able to reduce energy needs, increase the overall performance of the process and make it fully circular.
