Plastic waste Chemical Recycling by pyrolysis

Technology / Service Summary

This technology enables to convert hard-to-recycle waste plastics which contain PVC/PET into pyrolysis oil by thermally decomposing. Pyrolysis oil is raw material for virgin grade plastic.


It enables to recycle hard-to recycle plastics that contain PVC/PET, contributing to the creation of a recyling-oriented society.


・Enabling the processing of PVC/PET mixed plastic wastes.
・Advanced pyrolysis process based on the large scale commercial plant having 10 years operation experience.
・Non-catalytic and low pressure process
・Utilization of by-products to improve economic efficiency.


・Waste plastic can be recycled using existing refineries/chemical plants.
・It can reduce consumption of fossil resources
