Plast2oil is an innovative company that develops and operates plants that convert recyclable waste plastic into carbon fuel, which is refined into new chemicals via our partners. We continuously try to adapt our plants to the environmental needs. This applies both to the products that we can transform, but also to the size of our plants, which range from a container solution to the large stationary industrial plant.

We are a company focused on sustainable waste management
Sorting and Pretreatment
We typically get the plastic delivered from companies that collect waste from households. We sort the plastic, it becomes shredded and eventually dried before it is filled into silos.
What happens in our plant is a chemical process where the plastic under high temperatures is chemically degraded. What comes out of the plant is carbon fuel, gas, and char.
The carbon fuel which is the major output from our plant is refined by our strategic partners into new chemicals, new plastics, and diesel oil.
it is fundamental for our process

The principle of our Business Model
This little cartoon shows in a simple and clear way what our processes are, from collecting the plastic to making carbon fuel. What can’t be seen in the video is that we subsequently get the oil refined for new chemicals which again are used for the production of new plastic.
When the plastic is chemically degraded in our plant, other products are formed. The largest amount is carbon fuel, but gas, slag and heat are also generated.
Under the section on chemical recycling you can read what happens to the carbon fuel that is formed.
The gas produced in the plant is recirculated and drives the pyrolysis process. This means that no external energy supply is needed.
The slag which is formed in the plant can be used in several different ways. It can be used in asphalt production and it can also be burnt and used for heating.
The pyrolysis process gives off some heat which is used to dry the plastic, but it is also possible to use it in the district heating supply.
Our plant produces carbon fuel of such a good quality that it can directly in a diesel engine. But we won’t stop there. When we want our oil to be transformed into new chemicals, it has several reasons:
