3 Feedstock Recycling of Mixed
Plastic Waste


3.1 Introduction

Concerning feedstock recycling of mixed plastic waste
(MPW) with a low chlorine content, the following
initiatives seem to be most promising. They are either
operating in practice, have operated in the past, or have
a fair chance of becoming operational in the short-term.
Methods include:
(1) Texaco gasification process (Netherlands, pilot in
the US)
(2) Polymer cracking process (consortium project,
pilot)
(3) BASF conversion process (Germany, pilot but on
hold)
(4) Use as a reducing agent in blast furnaces (Germany,
operational): In this process MPW is used as a
reducing agent, and hence this is generally seen as
a form of feedstock recycling. For instance, in
Germany this is one of the most important
technologies by which the ambitious German
recycling target for plastic packaging waste is met
(a.2).
(5) Veba Combi Cracking process (Germany,
operational until 2000)
(6) Pressurised fixed bed gasification from SVZ
(Germany, operational)
These processes are discussed below.
