QHT integration in recycling operations
We are actively looking to deepen our knowledge about the chemical recycling industry. If you are open to co-create with our engineers or to discuss potential cases, please let us know.
Pyrolysis of plastics
Pyrolysis of plastics is an energy-intensive route for closing the carbon loop. The thermal process of cracking requires large amounts of energy.
Recovering the waste heat from the thermal process and using it instead to create more process heat represents an opportunity of significant value, especially in large-scale applications,
This energy is required to shift the thermodynamic equilibrium. Once the process heat is used, it turns to waste heat. Recovering the waste heat and turning that into valuable process heat is a valid way to make plastic recycling less energy intensive.
Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic material in the absence of oxygen. It involves the breakdown of organic materials at elevated temperatures in the presence of a catalyst into smaller molecules, yielding combustible gases and liquids that can be used as biofuels (natural gas), or feedstocks for chemical synthesis.
