Pyrolysis Reactor Facility

Pyrolysis Reactor Facility

Opportunity Overview & Value Propositions

Facility to streamline the “waste to energy” recycling process by including both “pre-treatment” and” pyrolysis” activities producing Recycled Polymer Feed (RFP) to be fed to either the existing “Naphtha” or “Fluid Catalytic” Cracker in the UAE

Value Propositions:

Phase 1:

  • Capture 40kt/yr of plastic grade feedstock
  • 40 kt/yr needed at a pre-treatment level
  • Extract ~30kt/year for reactor inlet @ 75% conversion
  • Reactor feedstock will be converted to RPF at approximately 85% conversion, yielding 25 kt/yr


Phase 2:

  • ~45% of unutilized Feedstock unlocked
  • Laws & regulations limiting exports and legalizing recycling
  • Additional capacity available for recycling


Long-Term: (+5years):

  • ~65% of unutilized Feedstock unlocked
  • Sourcing and sorting infrastructure of local waste will increase feedstock availability
