Waste-2-Chemicals

Lagos, Nigeria is a mega city and generates over 800,000 tons of plastic waste annually. A lot of it ends up in the environment and the ocean.   

With the Waste-2-Chemicals project in Lagos, plastic waste from residents is collected, sorted and subsequently converted into pyrolysis oil. This pyrolysis oil is available as a raw material for the production of high-quality chemical products. In cooperation with non-profit organizations, we enable local collectors and their families to earn a regular income in the future.
