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
A continuously industrial feeding system allowing the process to run 24/7.
The difficulties of providing a high-enough temperature, stabile during the treatment of different materials, to actually dissociate the molecules of, for instance, heavy metals, in different temperature zones.
Finding materials for the construction of the reactor, to be used in the process which will withstand such high temperatures over time,
The requirement of providing a zero-oxygen atmosphere for thermolysis to take place. We have an exothermic reaction in our process. An exothermic reaction is a chemical or physical reaction that releases heat. It gives net energy to its surroundings. That is, the energy needed to initiate the reaction is less than the energy that is subsequently released. The technology to accomplish all of the above results in an effective and profitable treatment of the waste problem. Our EURATEQ® process unit can do all above
Why the EURATEQ waste process
More about EURATEQ Technology
Our continuous feeding and process gives us the benefit of heating the process unit just once at the start and then the exothermic reaction keeps the heat in the process. We monitor the temperature constantly so if necessary we can add some heat.
The output from the EURATEQ® process unit, oil, gas, carbon black and some ash is gathered and stored in different containers.
The oil and gas can be used to produce electricity via a power plant. The excess heat is taken care of via different heat exchangers and that energy can be converted to electricity or/and cooling for buildings such as hospitals or universities. All is depending to the agreement considering the plant.

For all material the process starts with shredding. This is to be able to get the non-oxygen feeding to the EURATEQ process unit more efficient, e.g. higher production rate. For household waste we have a pre-treatment part where glass and metal is sorted out. This can be done manually or fully automatically. We also use some of the excess heat to preheat the waste to get the moisture level lower to optimize the output from our process. This is not necessary since early tests show that the process still works in a proper way.
Third party repport
The EURATEQ process, was tested and is endorsed by the Swedish Deparment of Energy and AFRY. ABB international and Siemens has been the two major supplier . The EURATEQ system is a continuous pyrolysis process. The system handle continous feeding of materials such as domestic waste, rubber and plastic. Outputs of the EURATEQ system are gas, oil and carbon black.The purpose of the measurements was to verify previous test results of product composition and amounts of gas, oil and carbon black from the EURATEQ pilot equipment.
Tests were carried out for two different types of material, dried and prepared domestic waste for the first case and rubber from tires for the second case. On both cases the temperature of the bed was set to 550 C. analysed, with approximated two hours interval.
Rubber and Plastic
Manufacturing Facility in Sweden
Plastic in the world
Today, more and more items are produced in plastic, including an ever-higher percentage of automobiles. Nearly 50% of plastic waste in the EU is still landfilled. Therefore, much energy and processed raw material is lost instead of being recycled into new products.
The Tire problem
Scrap tires are about to become the latest headache for many governments globally. A European directive bans landfills of whole- and shredded tires. New ways will have to be found to dispose of the 13 million tires that are stockpiled or put in landfills every year in Europe.
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 building of next generation of a water treatment unit (picture).The 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.
