How your Industrial Hazardous Waste to Energy Works The industrial waste in the form of plastic is made from crude oil. Oil is a finite natural resource, it would be sustainable to reduce crude-oil consumption by recycling the plastic and recovering most of the raw material. Many types of alternative fuels are developed from industrial wastes to recover or save the natural resources. These alternative fuels so generated are used as substitutes to the fossil fuels and help in running various processes.

Types of Alternative Fuels

Recycling can be done in two ways: mechanical and chemical. The former involves sorting, cleaning and shredding plastic to make pellets. This process brings benefits if plastic wastes are sorted according to the chemical composition. The latter turns the plastic into energy or fuels. This further involves two processes: gasification and pyrolysis. Gasification: During gasification, the carbonaceous substances are converted into carbon dioxide, monoxide and a small amount of hydrogen in presence of oxygen at high temperatures to form synthetic gas. This can be further used to produce diesel and petrol.


Pyrolysis: in this process, the plastic waste is heated in the absence of oxygen, which produces a mixture same as that of crude oil. This can be further refined into transportation fuels. These are used to incinerate the waste to generate different types of alternative fuels. Look for the safe and affordable facility that can help putting your waste to work.
