The introduction and effective dissemination of this technology across international markets holds immense potential for fostering environmentally conscious practices. Furthermore, the PPPP technology can contribute to global educational endeavors undertaken by social organizations aiming to cultivate awareness regarding the untapped energy potential residing within non-recycled plastic waste, detrimental to our environment. Additionally, this technology unlocks new avenues, including island-mode operation, for providing electricity as well as thermal and/or cooling energy to regions grappling with pervasive poverty. These areas often face limitations in terms of industrial manufacturing and agricultural capacity, resulting from inadequate infrastructure and limited access to electricity, leading to fewer employment opportunities.

Our patented, state-of-the-art technology (Thermo-Molecular Conversion - TMC) turns mixed plastics (PETE, HDPE, LDPE, PP, PVC, PS) into valuable feedstock.

Our closed-system, emission-free technology is environmentally friendly helping fight global warming and climate change.

Our Plastic Processing Power Plant helps build a circular economy by cycling mixed plastic waste to be used again and again.

Plastics made from our feedstock have a dramatically lower carbon footprint than plastics made from traditional fossil-fuel sources.

In the event of a natural or any other disaster, the mobile technology, operating in island mode, and raw materials can be relocated to the site of need within 48 hours. Furthermore, as an integral part of the emergency response, the produced oil can be efficiently transported to priority strategic, security, and recovery areas, serving as a crucial safety reserve.

PPPP represents the ultimate solution for the management of mixed plastic waste that eludes recycling through traditional means. This innovative approach ensures the safeguarding of the environment against the substantial volume of accumulated plastic waste from the past and the ongoing accrual.

Estimates indicate that achieving complete recycling of global plastic waste could result in energy savings equivalent to 3.5 billion barrels of oil annually. Recycling a single ton of plastic waste has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2 tons. By attaining a volume of 15 million tons of recycled plastics per year by 2030, which represents roughly half of the projected waste generation, carbon emissions could be reduced to an extent comparable to removing 15 million cars from the roads.

The thermo-chemical conversion technology (TCC) differs from the commonly known pyrolysis. The Plastics Power Plant operates on only electricity during its entire operation; it does not use gas to break down plastic. The heat required for decomposition is provided by the self-developed "Super Heater" electric heating system. Mixed plastic waste is converted into storable energy carriers and then into electricity in a closed (anaerobic) system using thermo-chemical decomposition.

Turbia Emission

The OP16 Gas Turbine's combustion technology is specifically designed to meet stringent emissions requirements. With the capability to maintain NOx and CO2 emissions well below 5g/kWh while operating on natural gas fuel, the OP16 Gas Turbine complies with the IMO Tier III emission guidelines without the need for additional abatement systems, ensuring that the OP16 Gas Turbines are not only compliant but also readily deployable engines. Moreover, these turbines exhibit significantly reduced CO2 emissions compared to reciprocating engines, further contributing to environmental sustainability. Additionally, the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that typically evaporate from crude oil present challenges for traditional engines due to their volatile nature and varying composition. However, the OP16 Gas Turbines effectively mitigate the release of VOCs through efficient combustion processes, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting environmental stewardship in maritime operations.

  • Carbon dioxide (CO2): CO2 emission depends on the amount of fuel burned in the turbine. The standard calculation of emission is Input Value (liter/year) x 2.653 (Emission Factor for Diesel) = Output Value (kilogram of CO2). CO2 emissions are easily mitigated by planting trees and shrubs around the PPPP.
  • Sulfur dioxide (SO2): SO2 emission depends on the quality of diesel used in the turbine. The diesel feedstock produced by the PPPP is high quality, low sulfur content. As a result, SO2 emission is low. SO2 emission can be mitigated by using alkaline-based sorbents to neutralize the acidic SO2 gas.
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx): NOx emission depends on the size/output of the turbine. Depending on the size of the turbine, NOx emission is 15-25 ppmvd (parts per million by volume dry) that meets international standards.

Carbon Footprint

The values contained in the CO2 emissions table are extrapolated and modeled based on the standard fuel consumption of the turbine. In every instance, precise calculations of CO2 emissions are required due to the non-uniform nature of the chemical feedstocks and fuels originating from the PPPP plant. These materials are inherently variable, stemming from the processing of diverse compositions of chemical waste within distinct geographic regions. Notably, discernible disparities are evident in the outcomes of the foundational CO2 emissions calculations associated with each respective technology.

The output of the technology is dependent on both the composition and quantity of plastic waste utilized as input. Hence, the computations presented in all TTL USA materials represent mean calculations rather than precise values.

Plastic Waste Generation in US & EU

EPA - Plastics: Material-Specific Data 

Source (2018): United States Environmental Protection Agency, American Chemistry Council

Plastics are a rapidly growing segment of municipal solid waste (MSW). While plastics are found in all major MSW categories, the containers and packaging category had the most plastic tonnage at over 14.5 million tons in 2018. This category includes bags, sacks and wraps; other packaging; polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and jars; high-density polyethylene (HDPE) natural bottles; and other containers. Manufacturers also use plastic in durable goods, such as appliances, furniture, casings of lead-acid batteries and other products. EPA does not include plastics in transportation products, other than lead-acid batteries, in this analysis.

EPA measures the generation, recycling, composting, combustion with energy recovery and landfilling of plastic materials in municipal solid waste. The primary data source on the generation of plastics is the American Chemistry Council. In 2018, plastics generation was 35.7 million tons in the United States, which was 12.2 percent of MSW generation.

EPA used data from the American Chemistry Council and the National Association for PET Container Resources to measure the recycling of plastic. While overall the amount of recycled plastics is relatively small - three million tons for a 8.7 percent recycling rate in 2018-the recycling of some specific types of plastic containers is more significant. The recycling rate of PET bottles and jars was 29.1 percent in 2018, and the rate for HDPE natural bottles was 29.3 percent in 2018.

The total amount of plastics combusted in MSW in 2018 was 5.6 million tons. This was 16.3 percent of all MSW combusted with energy recovery that year. In 2018, landfills received 27 million tons of plastic. This was 18.5 percent of all MSW landfilled.

A European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy 

Source: EUROPEAN COMMISSION Brussels, 16.1.2018. COM(2018)28 final


Plastic is an important and ubiquitous material in our economy and daily lives. It has multiple functions that help tackle a number of the challenges facing our society. Light and innovative materials in cars or planes save fuel and cut CO2 emissions. High-performance insulation materials help us save on energy bills. In packaging, plastics help ensure food safety and reduce food waste. Combined with 3D printing, bio-compatible plastic materials can save human lives by enabling medical innovation.

However, too often the way plastics are currently produced, used and discarded fails to capture the economic benefits of a more 'circular' approach and harms the environment. There is an urgent need today to tackle the environmental problems that cast a long shadow over the production, use, and consumption of plastics. The million tons of plastic litter that ends up in the oceans every year is one of the most visible and alarming signs of these problems, causing growing public concern.

Rethinking and improving the functioning of such a complex value chain requires effort and greater cooperation by all its key players, from plastics producers to recyclers, retailers and consumers.

It also calls for innovation and a shared vision to drive investment in the right direction. The plastics industry is very important to the European economy and increasing its sustainability can bring new opportunities for innovation, competitiveness and job creation, in line with the objectives pursued by the renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy.

In December 2015, the Commission adopted an EU Action Plan for a circular economy. There, it identified plastics as a key priority and committed itself to 'prepare a strategy addressing the challenges posed by plastics throughout the value chain and taking into account their entire life-cycle'. In 2017, the Commission confirmed it would focus on plastics production and use and work towards the goal of ensuring that all plastic packaging is recyclable by 2030.

The EU is best placed to lead the transition to the plastics of the future. This strategy lays the foundations to a new plastics economy where the design and production of plastics and plastic products fully respect reuse, repair and recycling needs and more sustainable materials are developed and promoted. This will deliver greater added value and prosperity in Europe and boost innovation. It will curb plastic pollution and its adverse impact on our lives and the environment. By pursuing these aims, the strategy will also help achieve the priority set by this Commission for an Energy Union with a modern, low-carbon, resource and energy-efficient economy and will make a tangible contribution to reaching the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

The strategy presents key commitments for action at EU level. Yet the private sector, together with national and regional authorities, cities and citizens will also need to mobilise. Similarly, international engagement will be necessary to drive change outside Europe's borders. With decisive and concerted efforts, Europe can turn challenges into opportunities and set the example for resolute action at a global level.
