The waste plastic are shredded to smaller size at 1 to 3 inches cut and at the same time some of the impurities are loosened through the fast rotary impingement inside the machine and finally removed to discharge screening auxiliaries. Six (devil) to ten (10) tons of pre-treated plastic (depending on compactness of feeding) are placed inside to the rotary reactor and closed to prevent the influx of oxygen. This rotary reactor is heated up to 600⁰C for efficient cracking of the petroleum component of the plastics and evaporates continuously while thermo chemical cracking is taking effect to its original form as petroleum.
The evaporated gas is liquefied again into petroleum fuel (known as plastic oil) through condensation process of cooling water system. Some of the light petroleum formed into methane and became none condensable, thereby returned back to heating chamber of the reactor and used as heating fuel. Plastic oil is packed with 9,500KJ per kilogram energy and could be the cleanest fuel oil with only .005% sulphur content. It has more or less 8 % less energy than conventional automotive diesel fuel and bunker oil but far better than bunker oil in terms viscosity, ash content, and emission quality.
The Pyrolysis System is a technology that has been implemented worldwide for over 40 years. We are using a system that is being used by big companies, for example, Carredi, that has over 400 plants installed worldwide. The top of the line machines can be installed to process 24 tons of rubber, plastic, and tires per day with very high precision. The final products are bunker oil, carbon black, and self-sustaining gas used as fuel for the daily operation. Calculations were based upon processing 1,000 tons of garbage using a Trommel System that was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In the mining of the landfill, you can successfully extract 5 main products. Based on tests the company was able to give an estimate on the value and quality of materials extracted. 26% to 29% of the volume is plastics, rubbers and tires while close to 40% are decomposed or decomposing matter. The rest is glass and metals. The Pyrolysis System is a simple process. A gigantic Trommel unit will be installed on the landfill site. The Trommel will process and separate dirt, decomposed waste, decomposing waste, glass, plastics and metals. Out of 1,000 tons, 300 tons approximately of plastics, rubber and tires will be extracted from the landfill on a daily basis.
Our equipment do not emit pollution of any kind.

Waste plastic to pyrolysis can generate quality fuel with lower emission, control waste plastic pollution. In case of waste plastic management, pyrolysis is better alternative compared to incineration or dumping. Incineration is burning of waste which leads to lost of valuable energy from polymer waste. Dumping of polymer waste is known to cause land pollution. By pyrolysis of polymer waste, it is possible to recover value oil from waste plastic in the form of Hydrocarbon gas and charcoal. Pyrolysis is a thermo chemical decomposition or cracking of organic material at elevated temperatures inside a closed chamber where oxygen is removed and not allowed. Component of plastic is 60-80 % petroleum; thereby through pyrolysis technology, the petroleum component of the plastics could be recovered instead of burying in the landfills.

Our system passed United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.
Pyrolysis is the process of molecular breakdown where larger molecules are broken down in smaller molecules. IAEC is dedicated to the pyrolysis of waste plastic to oil plant manufacturing. In case of waste to plastic oil pyrolysis, long chain polymer is broken down into smaller chains of Hydrocarbon Gas and Pyrolysis Oil. After further processing of distillation machine, this waste plastic pyrolysis oil can be changed into diesel oil which can be directly used for diesel oil generators, tractors and trucks, etc. In pyrolysis, the polymer waste is not burned; instead it is broken down into usable finished products like Pyrolysis Oil, Hydrocarbon Gas and Charcoal.
