50 kg/hr plastic conversion pilot plant in Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, QC
Partnership with: Polynergy Inc
Pyrovac and Polynergy, a subsidiary of the SG Group, are business partners in a $9M project to build a plant to convert plastic waste into pyrolytic diesel and gasoline.
When mixed with petroleum diesel used in buses and industrial trucks, pyrolytic diesel reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The production of pyrolytic diesel generates 68% less GHG than petroleum diesel, based on the ISO 14064-2 standard.
Ultimately, Polynergy will provide pyrolytic fuels that blend with petroleum fuels used by the industry, contributing to efforts to meet the industry’s environmental targets.
Some contaminated plastics or soft plastic bales are difficult to recycle economically by mechanical means. The pyrolysis technology developed by Pyrovac is an innovative solution for energy and environmental recovery.
Thanks to the financial support of Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and the Technoclimat program of the Quebec Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Pyrovac and its partner Polynergy intend to develop and commercialize the pyrolysis technology applied to plastic waste. The tandem aims to transform plastic waste into diesel and gasoline. One kilogram of plastics is converted into one liter of engine fuel. Road tests have been successfully completed in city buses and transport vehicles.
