Plastic waste meets its (re)maker – AustraliaPosted on May 25, 2022 by DrRossH in Plastic Recycling
It will re-purpose all types of plastics (1-7) to be ultra-low sulphur diesel, wax and naphtha to produce other plastics and will be capable of processing up to 200,000 tonnes of waste plastics annually, predominantly from NSW.
“The last two to three years there has been an emphasis on plastic waste in Australia and we see an acceleration of that. Efforts to ban plastic waste are already in motion. At Brightmark, part of our mission is to reimagine waste and create a world without waste. Australia is a very natural fit for us.”
The plastics renewal facility uses a patented pyrolysis technology, decomposition brought about by high temperatures, to turn plastics into liquid that can then create usable products. Brightmark says it is the only company in the world to use this unique type of advanced recycling technology, that is 93 per cent efficient, on all plastic types.
