End-of-Life Plastic Recycling

Our research has uncovered a unique solution that enables the collection of all plastics back into oil. It is called the RT7000 from Recycling Technologies in England.

The RT7000 has been designed as a transportable, modular, mass-producible unit, with a limited footprint of 30×30 m2. This allows it to be easily located on existing sites where the waste arises, largely avoiding costly transportation of low-density End-of-Life Plastic.

The modular nature of the unit makes it suitable for sites with smaller or larger waste handling capacities. Each unit processes a standard 7,000 tonnes per annum; larger throughput requirements can be accommodated by multiple units installed in parallel.

Recycling Technologies will build and operate the RT7000 units at your site, making this recycling solution easily adoptable with little or no change in normal operation of waste handling facilities.

Who is this for?

Plastic waste handling facilities* looking to:

  • Find a recycling solution to the streams that are currently being sent to landfill or incineration, moving up the waste hierarchy
  • Mitigate against the costs associated with disposal of End-of-Life Plastic waste and increasing landfill tax
  • Gain a competitive advantage in the waste management sector

*This includes but is not limited to landfill sites, materials recycling facilities (MRFs), plastics recycling facilities (PRFs), mechanical biological treatment plants (MBTs), paper packaging recyclers, anaerobic digesters (AD).

Local authorities looking to:

  • Simplify the collection and sorting system of their local waste
  • Provide an easier and more effective solution to their households and businesses
  • Meet national recycling and CO2 reduction targets

Petrochemical industries looking to:

  • Meet their customers’ demand for recycled products and packaging
  • Early adopt a green crude oil equivalent within their feedstock for plastic and wax production
  • Take a lead in sustainable development within their industrial sector
