Plastic Back Overview
Plastic Back has developed an environmentally friendly technology for converting plastic waste back into crude oil and other valuable chemicals. Based on this technology, Plastic Back has created a conversion unit that enables waste treatment and disposal sites to reduce the amount of waste put in landfills. The company's solution also provides waste producers such as factories, agriculture operations, and hospitals with an alternative to costly waste removal and treatment services.
Additional benefits of Plastic Back's solution include operation at room temperature, treatment of all plastic types with minimal need for presorting, small unit size, and reduction or elimination of greenhouse gas emissions through chemical conversion into valuable hydrocarbons during the process.
Plastic Back Climate Tech relevance
Plastic pollution is a pressing issue affecting countries and natural habitats worldwide. 370,000,000 tons of plastic waste are produced annually, with only 13% being recycled. Plastic Back’s process is able to close the loop between the waste handling and petrochemical industry. Plastic Back’s process can treat ‘difficult’ plastic types including PVC, mixed and contaminated. Beyond reducing the amount of plastic that goes to landfill, Plastic Back is reducing GHG emissions; their process is an energy efficient conversion which occurs under 100 ºC. The competition’s process occurs at temperatures of 600-1,200 ºC, emitting more GHGs.
