WHAT IS TCD (Thermo Chemical Depolymerization)?
Plastic TCD, also named as thermal deploymerisation, is a chemical reaction , that involves molecular breakdown of larger molecules into smaller molecules in presence of heat.
The process of TCD (Thermo Chemical Depolymerization) involves molecular vibration. Molecular vibration is the frequency at which molecules vibrates. It is directly proportional to the temperature of molecules. During the TCD process, due to high temperature, the object’s molecules are lead to very high molecular vibrations. At this stage, the high molecule vibration breaks down the large molecules to small.
Benefits of VERTE-X
- Cost Effective
- Reduce Carbon Footprint
- Sulphur Free Emissions
- Saving upto 20 % on Energy bills
- Varied Applications
- Conserves Fossil Fuels
VERTE-X is the end product of waste plastic TCD. This end product is widely used as an alternate for furnace oil or industrial diesel. PEPL Produced VERTE-X has calorific value ( energy content) of 10,000 to 10,800 cal/kg. This content is equivalent to diesel.
Typical industrial applications of VERTE-X as a fuel:
- Industrial Boilers
- Marine/DG Engines
- Construction / Mining
- Construction Industry
- Rotary Kiln – Cement plant
- Casting furnace
To Sum it all up
Raw Material - 1 Tonne
We take in plastic wastes from industrial complexes, residential complexes and plastic waste from Municipal Solid Waste.
Processing of RM
Plastic waste that is fed into the reactor is heated in the absence of oxygen at optimum temperature. Hydrocarbons are obtained in gas form.
Product Produced - above 600 lt of Pyro Oil
TCD oil -Broadly, It is a known fact that TCD oil is a valid substitute for conventional fuels.
Carbon Black is a byproduct which is a replacement for coal.
