Plastic pyrolysis: when the waste becomes an energy

Plastic pollution increasingly affects the lands, waterways and oceans, building a large-scale environmental problem that needs an urgent response. Countries search for solutions that support the idea of closed loop waste management by converting the waste into a valuable resource.

When other technologies focus on big, complex waste management systems, Biogreen© brings a compact and local-scale answer to the problem of plastic waste management. Our containerized unit for pyrolysis of plastics is modular, easy to install equipment, made to convert waste into calorific syngas suitable for energy applications. By operating in high-temperature process conditions and using unique, electrically powered Spirajoule© technology, Biogreen© can produce high yields of power and turn the waste plastic into valuable resource – creating the sustainable energy, just at the place it is needed.

Industrial technology

Reliable, high quality pyrolysis equipment is essential for the successful operation of plant. Our system comes in flexible, modular units. In designing our process for pyrolysis of plastics, we based on more than decade of experience in industrial process in Europe and worldwide.

High temperature pyrolysis of plastics

The process carried in Biogreen® results in greatest production of syngas at high calorific values, which is a key element of efficient waste to energy process aimed at the production of electricity, steam or heat.

Projects for pyrolysis of plastics: ETIA and Race for Water partnership

The Race for Water Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the water and the oceans in particular. Today, seriously under threat from plastic pollution, it is imperative that this essential resource for life is protected. This is why the main mission of Foundation focuses on preventing plastic waste from reaching the waterways and oceans by developing social models and business models that give value to plastic waste and hence encourage its collection.

We are proud to be chosen by Race for Water Foundation as the technical partner for developing Biogreen® solution to valorize plastic into electricity in order to preserve water from plastic pollution. Together with Foundation we develop industrial and economic solutions that responds to both: the threat of pollution of the oceans by plastic waste and to support the growing energy demand of islands and coastal cities directly affected by such pollution.


The plants provided for Race for Water Foundation enable non-sorted plastic waste to be converted into electricity in the optimum way. The containerised process is easy to implement. Capable of processing 5 to 12 tonnes of plastic waste a day, the compact units can be deployed close to occupied sites to provide street collectors with jobs and electricity for the population. According to the context, a single unit is enough to supply electricity to close to 6000 families.
