The usual lifestyle adopted by modern society creates a large amount of plastic waste. This is becoming a growing problem, especially in urban areas as well as oceans, lakes, and rivers. Our environment is flooded with waste plastic.
We have a sustainable and profitable solution to this problem – PWED. PWED produces electricity and thermal energy from waste plastic.
One PWED can charge 2,100 electric cars a day with 20 kWh of energy and/or supply 1,100 households with 36 kWh of energy per day and/or filled with hydrogen, from electrolysis of water, daily 140 vehicles with hydrogen fuel cells.
PWED consists of one battery storage system for the initial work until it becomes self-sufficient, two waste plastic shredders, two EREMA systems for molding chopped plastics, two systems for carbonization of impurities, two systems for depolymerization of molten plastic into hydrocarbon vapors, two condenser of hydrocarbon vapors into diesel and gas fuel and one turbine/generator, on two fuels (diesel and gas), to produce electricity and thermal energy.
Daily PWED “consumes” a little less than 13 tons of mixed and unsorted plastic. Thanks to its inventor, PWED “reverses” the process of creating plastic and produces three fractions of oil (diesel) and one fraction of gas. These fractions are created from hydrocarbon vapors that are created in the depolymerizer, the heart of the PWED device, which is also the central innovative process around which PWED is built. The oil and gas fractions are used in a specially designed turbine/generator OP16, which simultaneously uses all the diesel and gas fractions produced in the PWED.
It is important to emphasize that PWED has no chimney and does not produce harmful gas and smoke emissions. The OP16 turbine is equipped with a system for complete removal of emissions and particles from the exhaust.
