Plastic2Oil to Convert Waste Plastic to Fuel (3P)

Plastic2Oil’s patent-pending process converts nearly 90% of the hydrocarbons in reclaimed plastics into liquid fuel, according to JBI. Eight percent is converted into an off-gas that is used to fuel the process itself. The remaining 2% residue has been certified safe for landfill disposal, but subsequent testing found that it has a heating value of 10,600 BTU/lb. Thousands of pounds of waste plastic are produced at Rock-Tenn’s paper mills and MRFs each day. The company has been storing this waste material by-product for several years.
