PROCESS DESCRIPTION
This  is a recycling process  which transforms  waste  plastics  into liquid source of alternative  energy that  is
applicable as industrial raw material.
The  below  described  process,  SynthéCarburs  -T  Technology ® system  is  a  system  which processes  and
transforms plastic wastes into liquid energy.
The technology was developed by our firm and we manufacture the process equipment.
T-Technology® is a process to gain the energy accumulated in plastic wastes.
The equipment is capable to process plastic wastes that cannot be recycled in any other ways. The outcome
of the recycling is a liquid hydrocarbon composition which can either be further utilized as a fuel of vehicles
and combustion systems or raw material of chemical industry to be processed or rectified.
The  present  method  of  processing  enables  cost  economic  and  environmental  friendly  recycling  of
community or industry origin plastic wastes that would otherwise be a huge environmental exposure.
In the process of development of our technology we focused not only on economic and safety concerns but
environmental friendly treatment of community/industry wastes that otherwise would generate harmful and
hazardous exposure to the environment.
Unlike  various  other  recycling  processes  our  technology  fully  complies  with  all  the  requirements  of
European Union directives and regulations.
Here with we want to underline that in an effort on focusing on proper and safe operation our firm provides
commissioning of equipment and training of operating personnel as part of the system’s put into operation.
Our  firm  undertakes  catalyser  supply,  quarterly  service  and  maintenance  of  equipment  and  optional
developments  in a long-term contract;  thus  the  pieces  of  equipment always  represent  state-of-the-art  and
highly productive processes.
TECHNOLOGY
This plastic wastes recycling process is a catalytic method where the materials are transformed in an air-tight
environment at a temperature in the range of 420°C to 490°C.
Plastic wastes first melt then starts boiling in the equipment at atmospheric pressure. Carbon atoms  absorb
and transform into chark on the surface of the continuously supplied catalyser.
In the  so called  cracking process  carbon  atoms  separating from  the  chains  disengage  from the structures
causing their decomposition.
This is called polymer degradation. The process results in a linear chain hydrocarbon mixture, i.e. oil that is
featured with the relatively high percentage of light fractions.
T-Technology® system with parallel cyclic supply of the two (2) reactors processes  a volume of 510,000

kilograms plastic monthly resulting in a volume of 450,000 Liters output, that is a compound of fractions C5
– C34.
The system is easy to operate. Running of the system is cost economic and does not require a high number of
operating personnel. A condition of installation is a smaller building that complies with normal industrial
safety and fire prevention requirements.
Due  to  the  applied  procedure,  i.e.  T-Technology®  the  depolymerisation  process  is  fully  supervised  and
controlled digitally. The computer control always ensures optimal parameters to system operation.
The  efforts  of  our  group  of  companies  are  supported  with  our  broad  scale  of  experiences  and  regular
cooperation with internationally recognized experts. We collaborate exclusively with reliable subcontractors
and suppliers in manufacturing of T-Technology® system.
Our  developments  and  practical  experiences  gained  with  operating  systems  enable  us  to  continuous
improvement and extension of our technology to the re-use of other organic waste

1. Raw material store
2. Manual feed
3. Rectifier
4. Stack
5. Heating system heat exchanger

12.Inspection & Control system
Plastic wastes are supplied to the catalytic depolymerisation reactor at the gate. Solid fraction is collected in
the interim storage of the cleaning system. Vapours of plastics and synthesis gas are separated to fractions as
required in the rectifier unit. The synthesis gas preheated with natural gas goes  to the burner of the heating
system. Fumes provide the thermal energy to the reactor. The residual heat is gained by the heat exchanger of
the rectifier and the heating system. The end product stored in the plastic oil storage tank can either be sold
or consumed.
