What is an ecoPlant?

A Clean Planet ecoPlant uses patented (& patent-pending) Pyrolysis & Oil-Upgrading technology to convert non-recyclable waste plastics (which typically is incinerated, sent to landfill or lost in our oceans) into ultra-clean fuels. The fuels produced can be used as a direct replacement in fossil-fuel engines.

In addition to the eco-benefits of removing waste-plastic from environment and producing ultra-clean fuel, the ecoPlants significantly reduce process emissions compared to fossil-fuel oil refineries.

The 'Turtle Shell'

Clean Planet's ecoPlants are built to our trademark design - The Turtle Shell. Around the world the turtle represents 'good health', 'long life' and 'mother nature' - all qualities we wish to impart on each site. 

Each Turtle Shell has an Inner and Outer shell. The Inner shell is 'processing and power', the outer shell is 'nature'. A nature reserve, tranquility garden and allotments are all part of the Outer shell.

Built to BREEAM standards, with low noise levels and minimal waste-heat, an ecoPlant's core processing is designed to power itself. 

As with nature, every turtle shell is unique, but each holds the Clean Planet core properties within.

Everyone deserves better.

How it works

Turning waste plastics into ultra-clean fuel.

Up to 60 metric tonnes of non-recyclable waste plastics (per day) are shredded and fed into the ecoPlant. 

Read More about the Plastic used

In an oxygen-free environment, the plastic hydrocarbons are broken down into small chains. These chains are then upgraded into new products; liquids, solid and gas.

Watch a video about the process

The ecoPlant generates a gas (which is reused, so the plant powers itself), a solid (which is reused in construction) and ultra-clean liquid fuels: Naphtha, Fuel Oil, and EN15950 diesel (all pop-up windows)
