FROM PLASTIC
TO OIL

The WASTX Plastic technology transforms plastic waste into oil, which returns to the raw material cycle as a basis for recycled plastics or as an energy source. Problematic waste is turned into a valuable raw material!

THE SOLUTION TO THE PLASTIC WASTE CRISIS?

Plastic is primarily derived from crude oil. In order to reverse the process, we began to focus on chemical recycling, particularly pyrolysis. After more than a decade of research and development, we achieved exactly that with our WASTX Plastic technology. In a continuous and automated way, post-consumer plastic waste can be recycled into green fuel and energy.

HIGH TECH PAYS OFF

WASTX Plastic not only addresses the plastic waste crisis sustainably but also proves to be a profitable business model by transforming waste into a high ROI.

Waste to Wealth

All of the output products – green oil, energy-rich gas & carbon ash, can be used in the process or traded profitably on the market. The sales price of the oil can reach 1,100+ EUR/t.

Global Offtake

We collaborate closely with global petrochemical industries to aid the sales of all output products. This is done by securing offtake agreements not only in Germany but globally. 

Circular Economy

Plastic pyrolysis converts waste into valuable products, effectively closing the production loop. It also produces fewer harmful emissions, making it the greener choice.

WASTX Plastic MEETS REALITY

Case Study 1  ⟩

APR in Australia
Date: 2022

Location: Australia

Summary: Australia faces significant challenges in achieving its plastic recycling goals, with only 16% of plastic packaging recycled by 2020 despite a target of 70%. To address this, Biofabrik and its distributor Plastoil have commissioned the first WASTX Plastic pyrolysis plant in Australia, located at APR Plastics in Victoria. APR, a family-owned recycler established in 2002, has partnered with Plastoil to double Australia’s recycling rate within five years through advanced chemical recycling.

Case Study 2  ⟩

BASF in Nigeria
Date: 2021

Location: Lagos, Nigeria

Summary: The BASF Waste-2-Chemicals project in Nigeria utilizes Biofabrik's WASTX Plastic pyrolysis plant to convert plastic waste into pyrolysis oil, providing a circular feedstock for the chemical industry. This initiative not only addresses the environmental challenge of plastic waste in Lagos but also generates economic and social benefits by creating jobs for local waste pickers and supporting social entrepreneurship. The project aims to demonstrate the scalability of this technology across Africa, enhancing the waste management infrastructure.
