The EURATEQ WASTE® process is a unique concept involving treatment of waste by thermolysis, e.g. dissociation or decomposition of compounds by heat. We focus on problematic waste such as inter alia tires, plastics and hospital waste and also regular house-hold waste.
Dig up the past and save the future
The lack of provision of a continuously industrial feeding system allowing the process to run 24/7.
The lack of provision of a stable duration of high-enough temperature, during the treatment of different materials, enabling dissolvement of the molecules of, inter alia heavy metals, in the different temperature stages and zones of the reactor.
The lack of provision of necessary of those parts and materials that over time can endure the reactor’s high temperatures process.
EURATEQ WASTE® is a technology that is based on an exothermic reaction, i.e., a chemical or physical reaction that releases tremendous heat, which in turn releases tremendous volumes of energy to its surroundings. The amount of energy being released by the reaction exceeds the required energy to initiate it.
WHY THE EURATEQ WASTE PROCESS
More about EURATEQ Technology
The EURATEQ WASTE® technology overcomes the steps i)–iv) above and is able to accomplish an effective and profitable treatment of problematic waste and also enhance the world’s environment. A key factor of the EURATEQ WASTE® technology is the shredding of the waste material without letting oxygen leak into the reactor, thus protecting the oxygen-free environment that enables a more efficient and higher production rate of the recycling-process.
Manufacturing Facility in Sweden
For household waste we have a pre-treatment part where glass and metal are sorted out. This can be done manually or fully automatically. We also use some of the excess heat provided by the exothermic process to preheat the waste to decrease the moisture levels of the waste to optimize the output of the process. Our continuous waste-feeding and recycling-process provides the benefit of heating the process-unit from the start, whereas the exothermic reaction maintains the heat in throughout the whole recycling-process.
The output from the unit of EURATEQ WASTE® recycling-process are, oil, gas, carbon black and some ashes that are gathered and stored in different containers. The oil and gas can be used to produce electricity at an adjacent power plant. The excess-heat is preserved by different heat exchangers and the energy can be converted to electricity and cooling environment in hospitals, governmental buildings, universities, and other buildings.
Third party report
The EURATEQ WASTE® technology process, was tested and is endorsed by the Swedish Deparment of Energy and AFRY. Moreover ABB international and Siemens have been two major suppliers for the first generation EURATEQ machine that was constructed. As above explained the EURATEQ WASTE® process is a continuous thermolysis process (also known as pyrolysis process). The concept is to continuously feed the EURATEQ WASTE® machine with waste materials such as domestic/household waste, rubber and tires, plastic and hospital waste in order to have an output comprised by gas, oil and carbon black. The purpose of the third party measurements was to verify previous test results of the product compositions and amounts of gas, oil and carbon black from the first generation EURATEQ WASTE® machine.
The tests were carried out for two different types of materials, i.e., dried and prepared domestic waste in the first test-case and rubber from tires in the second test-case. During both test-cases the temperature of the reactor was set to 550 degrees Celsius and was analyzed, with an approximate interval of two hours.
Rubber and Plastic
Plastic in the world
McKinsey that is the leading global business consultancy-company, have expressed that it believes that chemical recycling will become a 60 billion USD revenue industry by 2030. Only in Europe the forecast by Plastics Europe is an increase of the recycled plastic industry from 2.6 billion EUR 2025 to 7.2 billion EUR 2030 The latest call for EU-regulations applicable to the plastic manufacturing industry obligates plastic manufacturers starting to use recycled plastic as a raw material in the production of new plastic products. The reusage of such recycled plastic must be 30–60 percent. Consequently, the demand for chemical recycling will increase equivalently, and the used plastic such as bags, plastic packaging and wrapping materials will have to undergo a thermolysis process to be transformed into “output” oil.
Thus, the demand for thermolysis oil from inter alia EURATEQ WASTE® thermolysis technology will increase in order to allow adaptation of the recycled raw material in the production of new plastics.
The Tire problem
Various studies quantify the global waste tire problem at between 1 billion and 1.8 billion used tires disposed of worldwide each year. This represents approximately 2-3% of all waste material collected. The US alone sends between 246 million and 300 million end-of-life tires to waste annually. The problem is also growing. With a rising population worldwide – especially among emerging middle classes in poorer countries gaining more access to vehicles – there comes an increase in vehicle use. As more miles are driven, more tires are replaced and more waste tires have to be dealt with. This global waste tire problem exists in the large amounts of landfill space taken up by tires worldwide. In Colorado, for example, there is a waste tire site with 60 million tires – 550,000 tons of material – dumped on the land. In addition, at least two-thirds of the billions of tires that become used around the world each year end up dumped in legal or illegal waste sites. Tire waste recycling is becoming an increasingly viable answer to the global waste tire problem. While only 13% of waste tires are recycled each year.
who we are
Entrepreneurs at heart, with a passion to find a market niche using technology solutions. The venture into the environment was initiated by the disturbing scenes of the aftermath of the waste and mountains of tires around the globe. Considerable research was undertaken to create the best technologies and commercial opportunities in very challenging and competitive markets.
EURATEQ AQUA SYSTEM
A new era of technology for water treatment.
The plant is built for recovery of oil from waste and slop oils by removing sediment and water. The plant consists of receiving and storage tanks and a process plant. The entire process plant can be fitted into a 40 feet container. The process includes chemical dosing, decentering and separation. The second generation of a water treatment unit (picture). The third generation unit is an upgrade and modified. The design has also changed to be more modular for future up-scaled production.The process unit consists of a first part (preparation), second part (process & separation) and a basin from where the clean water is pumped to a storage tank. There is also a control chamber with a space for testing of the fluids content.
