What is Waste-to-Fuel?

Essentially, waste-to-fuel comprises a material valorisation process similar to that of waste-to-product, in which the aim is to distil hydrocarbons or biofuels from raw materials that can be considered “renewable” due to their ability to be reused (e.g. biomass, plastic waste).

The medium used to distil these products is the production of syngas prior to pyrolysation of the waste in rotary kilns (reactors). The non-condensable part of the syngas is used to make sure the pyrolysis process is autothermal, while the condensable part is condensed to enable its subsequent distillation in columns similar to those used in the petrochemical industry and conventional refinement processes.

Is Waste-to-Fuel environmentally friendly?

Waste valorisation has become the alternative technology for energy recovery that has minimum impact on the environment and is capable to generate heat and electricity. Pyrolysis plants and waste incineration plants include flue gas treatment systems afterwards that collect and eliminate the gases generated, following an efficient and safe procedure, to guarantee maximum respect for people and the environment.


Tecam’s Waste-to-Fuel

Thanks to its extensive experience, Tecam has a broad knowledge of the most appropriate technologies for the implementation of these processes. For Tecam, pyrolysis is our value proposition of choice.

There are numerous project references in which Tecam has developed pyrolytic processes designed to treat and process highly diverse types of raw material or waste. This, combined with the integration of leading providers of distillation and condensation systems, and our experience in the sale of the end products produced by our customers, means we are able to offer our customers 360º solutions that include all of the documentation necessary to make the proposition viable. These documents include:

  • Process simulation reports.
  • Feasibility studies.
  • Monte Carlo analysis of investment risk.
  • Business plans.
  • Presentations to raise the funds required to carry out the project.
  • Guidance in obtaining licences for the plants.


Advantages of Waste-to-Fuel

Our processes represent a reliable and predictable alternative for the production of biofuels, with the aim of commercialising the process in line with the overarching objectives set by governments around the world in the form of policies to reduce the carbon footprint, and those set by the Spanish National Commission on Markets and Competition (CNMC) in particular.
