Innovative and Breakthrough Technology

Plastic waste and oil shale are processed using advanced methods of pyrolysis-based HSR technology. The final product is alternative oil and gases used for electricity generation. Oil shale pyrolysis is successfully applied on a large scale in existing plants and is a proven and efficient technology.

Pyrolysis - the preferred technology for plastic waste treatment.
Pyrolysis is a process of thermally decomposing organic matter in the absence of free oxygen. Plastic waste pyrolysis allows “reverse engineering”– plastics are broken down into the source materials from which they were engineered: oil and gas. The absence of oxygen reduces the pollutant emissions. In addition, the final products of pyrolysis-
alternative oil and pyrolysis gases, are high-quality energy sources.
The oil is convenient to store and transport, while the gases are used to generate electricity.
REM says no to burning plastic waste
Maximum energy efficiency with HSR
(Hot Solids Recycle) Technology

HSR technology is highly energy-efficient and compliant with European environmental standards. The technology is based on using oil shale ash as an energy provider. The ash is used as a stream of heat-carrying solids (Hot Solids Recycle) for a continuous pyrolysis process. As such, it contributes to tremendous energy savings and makes the need for external energy unnecessary.

In fact, it is the oil shale that makes it possible to provide an extensive solution in the treatment of plastic waste.
Heat recovery for generating electricity

Heat recovery for generating electricity – the hot gases emitted in the process as well as the pyrolysis gases are used to generate electricity. The electricity generation system will operate on the basis of the principle of cogeneration (electricity and heat) and the residual heat from the production unit will be used by various consumers in the plant.
