Mitigating the environmental impact of technologies used for oil and gas processing; Implementing effective circular economy processes via mechanical and chemical plastics recycling; Industrialising bioplastics production to address specific market requirements; Identifying oil substitutes to produce bio and renewable fuels from biomass feedstock.
Maire Tecnimont has recently started the operation of the new NextChem plant, the most advanced and efficient plastics recycling plant, managed by MyReplast Industries in Europe. Based on an economically sustainable business model, the plant is unique in terms of production capacity, processing flexibility and finished product quality.
In fact, it can produce over 40 thousand tons per year of recycled polymers, processing a range of incoming types of plastic waste, both post-consumption industrial such as vehicle components, food and industrial packaging production waste and urban postconsumption including materials from the sorting of household waste.
The treatment process ensures that the finished product, which is the recycled polymer, is of absolute top-quality with recycling efficiency of 95 per cent. Through an innovative approach based on product development, the plant facilitates in improving the properties of the incoming plastics (up-cycling) and enables the products to be sold on high-added value “premium” markets.
MyReplast Industries plant, very recently, has been visited and piqued the interest and appreciation of Y.B. Datuk Darell Leiking, Malaysian Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI).
