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.
