This zero pollution project aims at converting waste plastic garbage into value added fuel viz diesel and furnace oil etc.

Waste plastic problem is an ever-increasing menace for global environment. Plastics being non bio degradable get accumulated in the environment. Waste Plastic materials are dumped for land-filling and they become mummified after decades. It is worth mentioning that the plastic is not a bio-degradable material hence this leads to the soil contamination and in long term serves as a cause of severe environmental hazards uch as degradation of soil fertility, pollution of surface & subsoil water. Besides the above drawbacks, the embodied energy present in the plastic is lost.

In this direction, for the first time in the country, , Harita-NTI Limited(HNTI) a TVS Associate team have done significant work to dispose waste plastic material and thereby convert it into hydrocarbons ie fuel like diesel.

This technology has won several international environmental awards, including being selected as one of the top 10technologies for environmental protection by the European Environmental Press.

The Polymer Energy system is very robust by design and can easily process typical plastic waste such as used agricultural/mulch film, silage wrap and other soiled agricultural plastics, metallized plastics,plastic laminates, printed plastics, wet plastic byproducts and even heavily recycled plastics. The non-plastic contaminants are converted into ash which is automatically removed from the system during the normal cleaning cycle of the system.

As in this project, the conversion processensure no releasing of co2 into air and also this industry categorized as zero pollution the promoter deserve forcarbon credit.  

In fact, one of the key advantages of our system is that the process can tolerate high amounts (up to 30% of the mix) of other contaminants in the input plastics waste stream.  As a result, the operator can save on the cost of pre-sorting and cleaning, thus reducing the total cost of operation.

Typically the Polymer Energy system can process plastics waste with up to 30% of the following contaminants:
- mineral impurities such as sand, dirt, etc.
- impurities such as glass, small metal parts, etc.
- impurities such as cellulose, clothing, etc.
- water, oil residue

The output crude oil is high-grade and can be further processed in a refinery or used to power low-rpm machines such as electric generation turbines.

We also provide consulting services for recycling polymeric materials into fuels for use in the generation of power or energy, including converting plastic waste into fuels and other value added products.
