CONTINOUS PLANT DESIGN:
Whereas all existing waste plastic to oil plants in India and globally are batch plants with a maximum production capacity of 5 kL per day, our first plant itself is a continuous plant with production capacity of 14-20 kL/day. This is a 4-fold increase in production capacity in first plant itself. This design is easily scalable to more than 100 kL/day for subsequent plants.
DISTILLED FINAL PRODUCT:
While existing plastic waste to oil plants produce crude output which is not clean and causes environmental pollution when used, our final product is distilled and clean. Our product will provide a cleaner fuel alternative to Furnace oil (FO), low sulfur heavy stock (LSHS) oil and LDO, which are consumed in India at about 7.5 Million Tonnes/annum.
ROBUST TECHNOLOGY TOLERATES INCOMING PLASTIC WASTE FROM DUMPYARDS:
Continuous waste plastic to oil plants recently being installed in Europe and USA are struggling to work with dirty and mixed plastic. However, our technology can tolerate dirty mixed plastic waste obtained from municipal waste collection. We have successfully tested more than 100 samples from available sources of plastic waste in Navi Mumbai (plastic aggregators and dump yards) in our pilot lab-scale plant in the past 1.5 years as a proof of concept of our technology.
IMPROVED PROCESS EFFICIENCY:
Our technology consumes less energy, yet provides higher waste-to-fuel conversion efficiency. A head-to-head comparison of the most advanced competing technology to our technology demonstrated the value added by our improved and patented technology.
The energy requirement of the plant is produced within the process. The technology will also incorporate electricity generation to meet the plant’s needs.
ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY PLANT DESIGN:
The plant is designed to produce zero hazardous gaseous, solid or liquid waste. The air pollution control also has been designed to meet the European standards.
HIGHEST SAFETY STANDARDS:
We have followed the highest safety standards considering the inherent fire hazards in a waste-plastic-to-oil plants. We have obtained applicable regulatory clearance for our first plant.
BEST TECHNICAL MINDS:
The technology and process has been developed by highly talented technocrats, who intend to solve environmental issues with state-of-the-art technologies.
Our technology is patented in India. Patent has been granted for an invention entitled “AN IMPROVED PROCESS FOR CONVERSION OF PLASTIC WASTE TO FUEL” for the term of 20 years from the 10th day of December 2020 in accordance with the provisions of the Patents Act,1970. The patent is granted to Kamlesh Madanlal Gupta, who is the CEO of Five Elements Environmental Technologies and Kavita Madanlal Gupta, who is one of the founders of Five Elements Environmental Technologies.
