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.

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 is modular, easy to install equipment, made to convert waste plastics into calorific syngas suitable for waste to energy applications. By operating in high-temperature pyrolysis conditions and using unique, electrically powered Spirajoule© technology, Biogreen© reaches the highest yields of power and turn the waste plastic into valuable resource – creating the sustainable energy just at the place it is needed.

Biogreen® – the heart of your waste to energy plant

Reliable, high quality pyrolysis equipment is essential for the operation of waste to energy plant. Biogreen® offers you flexible, modular system for pyrolysis of plastics, which is based on more than decade of experience in industrial process in Europe and worldwide.

What are the benefits of high temperature pyrolysis?

Plastics pyrolysis in Biogreen® unit 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.

Our projects

ETIA and Race for Water

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.

The orientation of ETIA from its beginnings has always been the sustainable and circular economy. Today, the company is extending its development into the field of energy recovery from waste and plastic residues.

Biogreen® pyrolysis process allows converting plastics into renewable energies that are particularly useful for decentralized ecosystems (gasification process for the production of electricity, methane and hydrogen).

For this reason, ETIA associates with the RACE FOR WATER Foundation to develop industrial and economic solutions, which will respond to both: the threat of pollution of the oceans by plastic waste and to the growing energy demand of islands and coastal cities directly affected by such pollution.
