This breakthrough approach has the potential to expand the range of recyclable plastics
Pyrowave has introduced its revolutionary Nanopurification Technology. Applied to plastic waste, this technology operates at the molecular level to remove contaminants from polymers with perfect control on purified resins. It specifically addresses a challenge faced by most plastic waste recyclers including advanced recycling: the presence of contaminants in plastic waste and in pyrolysis oil.
Pyrowave's solution offers a plastic waste pre-treatment to purify the resins that can be used in advanced recycling methods sensitive to contaminants, or directly into final applications. What this means for advanced recyclers, is that pre-treating the feedstock and removing problematic additives upstream allows for a higher quality pyrolysis oil which in turn, allows to increase the threshold of recycled oil added into steam crackers.
This breakthrough approach has the potential to expand the range of recyclable plastics, including plastics with various contaminants and additives such as heavy metals, inorganic pigments, halogens, and flame retardants.
"We cannot sit and do nothing as the plastic pollution crisis escalates and the recycling rates are barely improving", says Jocelyn Doucet, CEO of Pyrowave. "As a pioneer of this industry, we are addressing the key challenge limiting the scaling of advanced recycling techniques by providing a groundbreaking nanopurification technology that will be driving real change for a cleaner, healthier planet.'' says Jocelyn Doucet, Co-founder and CEO, Pyrowave.
Pyrowave's nanopurification methodology draws inspiration from pharmaceutical purification technologies, capitalizing on the significant size disparity between polymers and most additives found in the compounds. The technology tables on the large difference in size and solubility to separate additives from polymers using the most advanced nanofiltration membranes. Unlike conventional dissolution methods reliant solely on solubility, Pyrowave's patent-pending technology enables simultaneous removal of various contaminants, all while maintaining meticulous control over the endpoint. It results in a process that is simpler, tailored to our clients' specifications, more energy efficient and economical.
