Sulzer’s fractionation unit helps Quantafuel to fight plastic waste

Sulzer Chemtech has completed the installation of a distillation unit for Quantafuel’s first full-scale plant in Skive, Denmark. The facility will be able to process 60 t of unrecyclable plastic to generate 48 t of hydrocarbons daily. These will then be used as fuel or to produce a wide range of useful chemicals.

In order to combat plastic pollution, the chemical recycling start-up, Quantafuel, has developed an innovative process that can considerably decrease the volume of non-recycled plastic waste while reducing the usage of natural oil and gas resources in the petrochemical industry. The novel conversion process consists of two depolymerisation steps - to produce alkanes - and a distillation stage to separate different hydrocarbon fractions.
