The plastic waste is fed into a shredder which is then blown and dried into a storage unit. From the storage unit, the shredded plastic is fed into the reactor which will, through high temperature, break down the plastic into a Gas, Liquid and Solid.
Is there any waste from the plastic and where does it go?
The waste (contaminants) from the plastic becomes carbon ash or carbon black. Both of these can be used in the manufacture of either paints, tyres, asphalt and bitumen.
