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.
- Establishment of pyrolysis laboratory for investigating the relationship between plastics waste and pyrolysis oils produced.
- Deployment of batch pilot unit capable of processing 10 kg of plastics waste to pyrolysis oils daily.
- Commissioning of continuous demo unit capable of processing 1,000 kg of plastics waste to pyrolysis oils and creating 20 additional jobs scheduled 2022.
