In the main reactor, a special metal alloy heats the raw material in milliseconds. By means of flash pyrolysis, impurities are separated and the oil fraction is transferred into the gas phase with unique efficiency.
Special rectification separates the gas phase into fractions from heavy to light boilers. This results in different distillate qualities. Fuels suitable for engines are discharged, other fractions repeat the process.
Between 5 and 10 percent of the raw material leaves the process as a tar-like residue. This can be used for bitumen production in road construction or as a substitute fuel. No further waste is generated.
A single litre of waste oil contaminates one million litres of drinking water
If only one third of the illegally disposed oil ends up in the water cycle, approximately eight billion tons of water per year will still be permanently polluted. This corresponds approximately to the amount of drinking water required worldwide per year.
Support us on our way to making decentralized waste oil treatment available anywhere in the world. Participate in the WASTX facilities with small or large investments or operate your own facility directly at your location.
WASTX Oil processes up to 2,000 litres of oil waste per day and plant – directly at your location.
