BPCL has established itself as the first post-consumer Bottle to Bottle PET recycling plant in Bangladesh. Starting its operation in July 2012, BPCL has set up a plant that is capable of producing 10,500 metric tonnes (MT) of recycled PET resin per year using used PET bottles as raw materials.
Discusses various processes to convert waste plastic to resin!
3 Feedstock Recycling of Mixed
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.
(1) Texaco gasification process (Netherlands, pilot in
(2) Polymer cracking process (consortium project,
(3) BASF conversion process (Germany, pilot but on
(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
(5) Veba Combi Cracking process (Germany,
operational until 2000)
(6) Pressurised fixed bed gasification from SVZ
These processes are discussed below.
