With today’s technology, only 9% of all plastic will ever be recycled. The rest ends up in landfill, being incinerated (huge CO2 emissions) or entering our ocean. The latter directly kills our wildlife and plastic is now shown to be in our food chain!
Every year the world uses millions more barrels of fossil-fuel than the year before. The increase in pollutants such as SOx and NOx are poisoning our air; in addition the increase of CO2 emissions is a key cause for the climate crisis.
Clean Planet Energy are launching ecoPlants across the UK and Europe which reduce the plastic and carbon problem.
How? Read more below 👍
Clean Planet Energy's ecoPlants use a process called ThermoCatalytic Pyrolysis. In the absence of oxygen, the plastic hydrocarbon chains are broken down to produce ultra-clean fuel. The gases emitted during this process are captured and used to power the ecoPlant, meaning the ecoPlants powers themselves and are ultra-clean!

Unlike today's mechanical recycling processes which are limited to a specific grade of plastic, our ecoPlants can accept almost any type of plastic, including single-use plastic and plastic which is wet and dirty (e.g. with food waste). This means the vast majority of plastic which is harming our environment can now be recycled.
Each ecoPlant can process 15,000 tonnes of plastic a year, making a significant positive impact for the communities wherever they are built.
Clean Planet Energy produces ultra-clean fuel from the plastic waste. This fuel can be used on any diesel machine without adaptation. The fuel burns with zero SOx and NOx emissions (the key pollutants in air pollution), and has a 50% lower CO2 emission too, reducing the scale of the #ClimateCrisis.
Each ecoPlant can produce 100,000 barrels of Ultra-Clean Fuel a year and the focus is to replace commercial vehicles, ships and machinery from operating on dirty-diesel.
How Clean is Ultra-Clean?
There are four key areas where our fuel is cleaner than fossil fuel...
Clean Planet Energy does not require CO2-heavy oil rigs in the ocean to extract oil from the sea-bed. This stops over 50kg of CO2 emissions being created for every barrel of fuel made.
Clean Planet Energy reduces the CO2 output by over 40% compared to Oil Refineries during the production process. CPE's ecoPlants make like-for-like fuel, with a 40% in CO2 emissions at this stage.
All fuel is equal, but CPE fuel is cleaner than others. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, CPE's fuel emits negligible Nitrogen (NOx) and Sulphur (SOx), the cause of 25,000 early deaths in UK last year alone from fossil fuels!
Every ecoPlant removes up to 40 tonnes of plastic a day from being incinerated or entering landfill. Stopping that waste-plastic stops over 110Kg of CO2 being produced from incineration/ for every barrel of fuel made!
Pick a plastic, any plastic.
Unlike today's methods, we enable almost any plastic to be recycled
There are 7 different types of plastic, our ecoPlants can take them all.
No sorting needed. Just feed all the waste-plastics into the ecoPlant's hopper, and it will generate ultra-clean fuel.
Plastic packaging, agricultural film, food and beverage containers. Single use & non-recyclable
Even including types of plastic that have high oil yield: PP, PS, LDPE, HDPE
Some plastic contaminated? Metal slipped in? No problem. The ecoPlant can still work with up to 10% non-plastics in every load.
Clean Planet Energy's ecoPlant can accept almost all non-recyclable waste-plastic, stopping it from entering our oceans, landfill or being incinerated.
