Phoenix technology could help solve the critical problem that many waste management companies are facing; where to put or what to do with all the unwanted plastic waste.    

Currently, the plastic recycling industry only recycles very limited types of materials.   In fact, according to US-EPA data, less than 11% of waste plastic is being recycled, most are pure, clear, clean and uncontaminated materials.  These selected materials still need to be sorted, washed and cleaned under strict criteria before they can be recycled.  Most of the combined, mixed, specialty and cross-linked plastic material is considered unrecyclable or contaminated materials and destined for landfills or incinerators.  Phoenix technology does not discriminate between the different grades of plastic.  Any kind of plastic, clean or contaminated, can be converted into consumer grade fuels.  

Furthermore, due to its lightweight, bulk and complex chemical composition, plastic is costly to transport.  Our technology will enable waste to be processed locally rather than being hauled to one centralized facility and/or landfills.  Waste management companies would be able to reduce their transportation costs while at the same time even produce their own renewable energy (diesel or gasoline) to fuel their fleet of trucks.  

There is an insatiable need for energy not only in Canada but worldwide.  Phoenix technology would create a new renewable energy source and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.  According to a Canadian Plastic Industry Association (CPIA) study in 2015, each year there are 2.8 million tonnes of non-recyclable plastic waste that could be converted into 9 million barrels of synthetic oil products – enough to power 640,000 cars for a year using pyrolysis technology. CPIA has endorsed this as a sustainable way to take care of the large amount of plastic waste generated.
