Ventana's technology enables conversion of waste plastics to high economic value petroleum fuels. The technology deploys a patent-pending, fully continuous depolymerization process to molecularly crack and re-arrange longer chain hydrocarbons found in polymers to shorter chain hydrocarbons found in petroleum fuels, transforming thereby a waste stream into an economic resource..
The technology accepts a large variety of raw, unwashed, mixed waste plastics from post-municipal, post-industrial and post-agricultural waste streams and converts them to useful fuel oils having a host of applications. It helps extract calorific value from landfill bound waste, ease dependence on foreign oil and create high-quality green jobs across communities where such plants are deployed. It also promotes ecological sustainability by providing a supplementary route for generation of petroleum fuels which avoid greenhouse gas emissions associated with drilling, piping and refining of crude oil.
The technology converts non-recyclable waste plastics to
HyFuelTM – a low viscosity, high calorific value
petroleum distillate having a carbon number distribution similar to
gasoline & diesel
(C5 - C24).
HyfuelTM can be fractionated to obtain a light and a middle distillate stream which approximates commodity petroleum fuels. These streams are a drop-in to existing refinery infrastructure and have a readily available offtake as replacement for conventional gasoline & diesel blend stock.
