The Technology

Pyrolysis Reactor

  • Multistage, externally heated screw auger.
  • Throughput of 25,000 – 30,000 tonnes/a plastic.
  • Gases and solids treated independently.
  • Multiple process variables within the pyrolysis enables optimisation of product yield and quantity.
  • Thermally self-sustaining – runs on internally produced gas.
  • Optional addition of gas – gas heat exchanger to optimise gas production.

Liquid Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology

  • Utilises shell and tube scraped wall heat exchangers in multiple temperature controlled windows.
  • Removes condensable hydrocarbons from gas stream in controlled fashion.
  • Highly flexible to suit client and transportation requirements.

Patented Technology

  • Intellectual property covering our pyrolysis, Liquid Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology, and gas clean-up technologies.
  • Both CGC Technologies have UK Granted patents and are PCT published.
  • Patent applications submitted in Europe, USA, India, China and Russia.

STANDARD PROCESS PLANT

  • Engineered end-to-end pyrolysis plant.
  • Other than the Pyrolysis Reactor and Liquid Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology, the plant  consists of low risk industry standard components.
Flexible Solutions

High Efficiency, Low Cost

  • Low CAPEX per tonne of feedstock compared to competing technologies.

Modular

  • Plants designed to be modular and scalable.
  • Technology can be arranged for a multi-feedstock solution on a single site.
  • Technology can be arranged for a single-stream multi-module solution to increase throughput.

MULTI-FEEDSTOCK: PLASTICS

  • Highly flexible feedstock parameters, can accept multiple types of polymers.
  • Can accept both mixed plastics and plastic compounds.
  • Capable of processing levels of inert and non-plastic matter (e.g. food) within a plastic feedstock.

MULTI-FEEDSTOCK: NON-PLASTICS

  • Potential feedstocks such as: Refuse Derived Fuel / Solid Recoverable Fuel, Municipal Solid Waste, Coal, Tyres, and Biomass.
  • Each plant, based around the CGC technology, is tailored to the feedstock.

MULTI-REVENUE: PLASTICS

  • Liquid Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology separates product in to multiple fractions resulting in multiple products (e.g. waxes, fuels, naptha) per feedstock.
  • Sufficient gas to sustain conversion plant, excess gas is sold or used for energy generation.
  • Intrinsically adaptable conversion process means economics of plant are unrestricted by evolving feedstock and off-take.

MULTI-REVENUE: NON-PLASTICS

  • Each feedstock generates a selection of products and revenue streams.
  • Each plant is local feedstock market and end product specific (e.g. waste to energy via gas production), utilising all products of thermal conversion.
