The Great Pacific Garbage Patch — “food” for the TDP-2 Unit or how the mobile solution of ST CJSC will meet the challenge of plastic pollution of the World Ocean!
The world ocean is a cradle of the humankind. The life and everything included in this concept was born in it. The area of these “amniotic waters” is 361.1 km², i.e. 70% of the Earth’s surface, and its volume is 1340.74 million km³. This resource of amazing and so necessary to mankind substance — water — seems eternal and inexhaustible.
However, the ingratitude of a man knows no limits. In its pursuit of convenience and benefit man has gone far in the process of polluting the World’s oceans. And if earlier the word combination “Bali Island” evoked memories of wonderful sand and gentle waves, now it is associated with an incredible amount of plastic trash that dotted its popular beaches. The biggest problem, however, lies out in the sea […]
The quality of plastic, which has been in the water for a long time, of course, will not allow the implementation of recycling technologies, but for omnivorous thermal technologies it will not come as a serious challenge. The proposed (even evident) solution to this challenge is a continuous pyrolysis unit TDP-2. The essence of the pyrolysis process consists in heating the feedstock in an oxygen-deficient atmosphere and subsequent evaporation, cracking and condensation of hydrocarbon compounds. Not all types of waste can be recycled by the pyrolysis method, but plastics waste is suited to the pyrolysis process in the best way possible, with the formation of a maximum useful product and minimum waste in the process. The useful product in case of plastic recycling is pyrolysis fuel, which is used to maintain the temperature of the process.
Keywords: plastic pyrolysis, plastic waste recycling, thermal decomposition unit TDP-2
