What is it?
Waste-to-product refers to technologies designed to valorise materials from any type of waste, with a focus on processes that enable the production of by-products. These by-productsare prepared so that they can be blended with “on-spec” products in various sectors (e.g. the petrochemical industry, refineries); or alternatively the aim may be to directly produce a finished or end product for industries in which these processes offer alternative solutions that form part of the circular economy and bring these products closer to the paradigm of renewable sources, thereby minimising petrochemical and conventional refinement processes, the consumption of fossil fuels and, therefore, the carbon footprint.
In line with the aim of the product in question, the generic title of “waste-to-product” can be modified to “waste-to-fuel” when the process involves distilling fuels, or “waste-to-chemicals” when the process involves distilling base chemical products.
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.
On numerous occasions, 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
- Flexible, modular designs
- Results tested in process simulations
- Reliable technology (pyrolysis).
- Project references involving other pyrolytic applications
- Achievable targets for biofuel production
- Guidance for the developer (licensing, raising investment funds, etc.).
