The White Refinery® biofactory can recycle problematic materials such as plastic waste, used oil or used diesel to produce energy. In contrast to huge industrial plants, our compact pyrolysis can be operated directly where the waste is generated – in companies, communities and cities all over the world.

Waste and energy – two gigantic challenges

Every year more than 6 million tons of waste end up in the sea – about three quarters of it is plastic. This corresponds to more than one truckload of plastic waste per minute.

According to current projections, more than 100 million tons of plastic waste are now circulating in the largest of the world’s five garbage strudels.

In addition, there are the countless landfills worldwide – the largest of which is as large as 700 football pitches. Since plastic waste does not rot, sensible plastic recycling is more than overdue.

At the same time, global energy demand is rising rapidly. From 1990 to 2008, per capita consumption increased by 10%, while the world population grew by almost 30%.

According to current estimates, energy demand will increase by a further 30% by 2035, equivalent to an additional demand of more than 4 billion tonnes of oil per year.

The White Refinery biofactory solves both problems.

This is where the WASTX technology of the White Refinery bio factory comes in, because large quantities of crude oil are also used for the production of plastics.

These are bound in the later plastic waste in solid, no longer usable form. The WASTX technology dissolves the chemical compounds and converts them back into their liquid form.

One kilo of plastic contains up to 10 kilowatt hours of energy – almost as much as in diesel and enough to

aSmartphone for up to three years every day.

The integrated generator converts the product oil directly into electricity if required. For example, in our pilot project in the French Antilles:

The strategically positioned WASTX plants dispose of the plastic waste generated on site and provide clean, stable energy for the archipelago.
