Pyrolysis is a process of chemically decomposing organic materials at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen. The process typically occurs at temperatures above 430°C (800°F) and under pressure. It simultaneously involves the change of physical phase and chemical composition, and is an irreversible process. The word pyrolysis is coined from the Greek words "pyro" which means fire and "lysis" which means separating.
The pyrolysis modular plant will be used for the processing of plastics for the production of base oil. Each module is composed of two main parts, the first, through the pyrolytic system, transforms the plastic into oil; the second, always through a pyrolytic system and a distillation tower called "cracking", distil the product, making it transparent and equivalent to other products on the market, also removing odors.
The project has the mission of creating a production chain of plastic residue for their "second life", bringing the plastic back to raw material, as in origin.
