THERMOLYSIS

Tridea has focused all energy on plastic recycling solutions for 7 years and understand the different end of life plastics like no other. TPR, focusses on thermal plastic recycling. Together, Tridea and TPR have innovated and developed a hybrid Thermolysis system specially designed for plastic waste. Through our lines we provide a turnkey solution to turn plastic waste into fuel which can solve both fuel and electricity shortages for bases and other installations, customizable and easily scalable in different sizes and outputs to adapt to different requirements.

Waste Supply

Waste supply is important. by calculating what waste sources are available we can calculate size of plant needed. A key benefit of the system is that it works with a multitude of plastics, we have identified the following streams deliver optimum results PP/PE/ HDPE/LDPE/ABS.

Stage 1

Sorting Waste

Waste products that need to be sorted out this stream would be PVC/PET/PC or high temperature thermal plastics. These plastics reduce the amount of oil output and create harmful byproducts that are damaging for the environment. Many countries already have advanced separation systems set up at municipal level for the sorting of waste plastics from general streams. This is useful and would reduce cost of implementing this step on location.

Stage 2

SHREDDING Waste

The plastic is first pre-shredded, followed by a wood and metal removal phase, and finer shredding phase.

Stage 3

Washing & Drying Waste

The plastic is washed to remove contaminants that reduce the quality of the end product. 

Stage 4

Stage 5

Thermolysis Process

The plastic is than fed through the thermolysis process. Here the separation of the oil, the gas and the carbon take place. The oil, gas and carbon are stored separately.

Stage 6

Filtering Oil

In this step the oil can be filtered, conditioned and refined for the intended product.

Stage 7

Electricity Production

We then transfer the oil and gas to the generators for electricity production or storage in tankers to use for motor vehicles.

Stage 8

Processing Carbon

The carbon that is produced as a by-product can be compressed into coal and sold to cement plants or used other industrial needs.

A closed-loop Solution

We believe in recycling for the environment, but we also believe in recycling for the financial benefits. Turning waste products initially into oil, gas and then converted into energy and/or new plastic products creates a 360 loop, keeping the revenue in the country where it is processed. 

 

One of the advantages of the system is the plastics used in the process are generally considered to be low-grade plastics. These plastics, like PP/PE/ HDPE/LDPE/ABS, are usually not part of the existing recycling processes, which is mostly made for high value plastics such as PET or PC.

AVAILABLE PLANTS

We are currently in the process of building the first 50T/day plant in Belgium. It is advantageous to work with a continuous system because there are less energy losses. With a batch system (transportable versions), a lot of energy is lost during startup and cooling.
