Advanced pyrolysis and surface flash cracking

SOLECO PROCESSES

The pyrolysis process developped by Soleco Energy makes it possible to transform unsorted plastics in high-energy products, such as low sulfur diesel, industrial and heating oil, without releasing harmful emissions into the environment. The waste plastic material is subject to temperatures between 350 and 500 degrees Celsius, in the absence of oxygen.

Soleco Energy’s innovative pyrolysis processes offer real opportunities for generating value for non-recycled plastics and improve overall plastic management practices.

We build resilient transformation plants supported by next generation clean technologies

Pyrolysis

Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of organic matter in the absence of oxygen or in a low oxygen atmosphere.

This is the first stage of thermal transformation after dehydration. It makes it possible to obtain valuable oil, a carbonaceous solid and a gas. It starts at a relatively low-temperature level (from 200 ° C) and continues to about 1000 ° C. Depending on the temperature, the proportion of the three resulting compounds is different.

The major interest of this technique is that its products are highly valuable. Soleco Energy has developed innovative batch and continuous pyrolysis processes that allow for the profitable transformation of non-recycled plastics.
