Development of an “Waste Depolymerization – CTC Process – (Catalytic Tribochemical Conversion) Project.
The world is at a turning point in energy policy, as evidenced by the increasing awareness of the risks associated with nuclear energy and the growing trend towards alternative energy sources. Although the oil price is currently very low, it is expected to increase considerably in the medium term due to the limited availability of resources.
A second major challenge the world is currently facing is the enormous increase in waste. Besides the amount of waste, the harmful substances contained in these waste materials constitute a big problem.
Waste – municipal waste in Germany:
The volume of municipal waste is in Germany for many years stable at just under 50 million tonnes.
We, “NEWE REAL ESTATE & ENERGY HOLDING LLC”
a young, innovative company, want to tackle these problems!
A German-developed process called CTC (Catalytic Tribochemical Conversion) enables us to produce high-quality synthetic diesel fuel or heating oil out of processed waste and/or renewable materials.
CTC technology – diesel from waste:
The CTC technique has been economically optimized for a wide range of biological and organic input materials. The following raw materials can be processed using this method:
- Plastics of all types, including those containing PVC
- Processed municipal waste, mixed industrial and commercial waste
- Waste oils, waxes, and fats of all types, including transformer oil and hydraulic oils
- Agricultural waste, animal waste products, spoiled food, and hospital waste
- Crude oil (petroleum), with 80 % to 90 % of the petroleum input being recycled, as well as refinery waste, such as bitumen, tar, etc.
In addition to its usability with a wide variety of organic starting materials ranging from renewable raw materials to mixed plastics, the benefits of this process include:
Starting materials nearly inexhaustible
- No starting materials that are also needed for human nutrition are required
- No consumption of water
- No additional cultivation areas are required
- Utilization of energy potential contained in the input materials with unprecedented overall efficiency
- Storage of energy in the form of liquid, storable, and versatile energy carriers
- Low process temperature prevents the formation of pyrolysis gases
- Significantly reduced environmental load due to binding of harmful substances
- Single-stage process – can be used in small, decentralized units
- The process has been tried and tested over many years
A new proven technology for converting waste has been developed for the market.
It’s time to use this technique.
Our experience with this technique
Over the past years, a number of methods for depolymerization, i.e. conversion of waste into oil, have been developed, of which Catalytic Tribochemical Conversion (CTC) for the conversion of plastic waste and Organic Waste Depolymerization (OWD) have turned out to be marketable.
Since 2013, DIESELWEST GmbH (www.dieselwest.de) has been successfully operating an industrial pilot plant using the CTC process at the disposal center of ECOWEST (www.ecowest.de) in Ennigerloh (Germany).
The plant has been developed and erected by ALPHAKAT Engineering GmbH, now trading under the name RECENSO GmbH. Dipl.-Ing. Jürn Düsterloh, CEO of DIESELWEST, was, and still is, in charge of the overall process. DIESELWEST produces engine-ready fuel out of refuse-derived fuel, which is normally used in the cement industry for carbon reduction. By means of subsequent desulfurization using a patented procedure, DIN-compliant fuel is produced.
The OWD process developed by Dipl.-Ing. Christian Widmer from AFAG Engineering GmbH in Binningen / Switzerland has also been tested successfully in a demonstration plant. Mr. Widmer has many years of experience working for large companies as a chief developer and process engineer. He holds several patents and has developed the Organic Waste Depolymerization (OWD) process. Between 2010 and 2011, he operated a demonstration plant in Omalingen (Switzerland), where he tested the OWD process for the conversion of plastic waste into heating oil and fuel and conducted successful fuel test series. An industrial pilot plant has not yet been erected. Due to having higher processing temperatures than the CTC process, the OWG process only yields an intermediate product that can be used in refineries.
Following a number of test series and optimizations, the CTC technology has turned out to be the most advanced variant of the two processes – CTC and OWD. Bearing worldwide potential for energy policy, waste management, and optimum environmental protection, this technology represents a key technology and is thus a significant invention of our time. It opens the way for global marketing. Instead of uncontrolled waste disposal (oceans) or incineration involving input of energy, CO2 emissions, and the use of sophisticated technological measures to bind the resulting toxic substances, such as dioxins and furans, this process permits the nearly full conversion of the starting products into a high-quality and easy-to-store energy carrier, namely heating oil or diesel.
Besides plastics, refuse-derived fuel produced out of waste (fluff), organic residues, such as sawdust or sunflower husks, and processed groundwood rejects from the paper industry have turned out to be particularly suitable as starting materials.
As a rule, however, any material that used to be or could become petroleum can be converted into oil using the CTC technology – after corresponding pretreatment.
Since December 2014, the process has been designated by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany as being particularly sustainable and has been proposed to the European Commission for funding within the scope of the Juncker Investment Plan.
Our motivation for the use of this technology
For several years we accompany this new technology.
We have brought with developers / engineer this technology to market.
A problem from yesterday as a solution for the future.
Our objective is to implement the first industrial application of the catalytic pressureless depolymerisation (CPD) technology with refuse-derived fuel (RDF), and to verify the economic viability of the process, in addition to use of the CPD product as a climate-neutral fuel.
Conversion of plastic waste in an energy reservoir.
Shaping the future with yesterday’s problem:
That’s our goal!
