HOW IT WORKS

Our mission is to make all plastic valuable.

This can be achieved with our simple pyrolysis technology, a little bit of teamwork and know-how.

PYROLYSIS PROCESS

GTM Waste to Resource Systems utilize pyrolysis technology to convert problematic, non-recyclable waste, into fuel and other valuable outputs.

 

Pyrolysis is a thermal conversion of a feedstock to a synthesis gas or syngas in a zero-oxygen atmosphere.

HYDROCARBONS

During the gasification phase of the Pyrolysis process, solid plastics made up of long chain hydrocarbons are extracted by the temperature and break apart into short chain hydrocarbons. When cooled they maintain a liquid state.

SYNGAS

The syngas is cooled to create a condensate oil. The oil is then further refined to produce fuels and other chemical compounds using fractional distillation. Remaining Hydrogen gas (H2) and Carbon Dioxide (C02) is used to fuel the heating process and is recirculated back to the Pyrolysis heating systems.

HYDROGEN GAS

The Hydrogen molecules that are lost due to the separation remain in a gaseous state. This Hydrogen gas also contains fractions of LPG which has excellent calorific values and is a great source of heating gas.

GTM will strategically locate its facilities on site or in the vicinity of the local landfill areas to make use of landfill gas extraction to capture Methane gas as a fuel source to produce heat and electricity, landfill material will also be cultivated as a feed stock (raw material).

 

If a landfill site is not an option, then the facility will include Organic Bio Digestors capable of receiving 100 Tons per day of organic waste to generate Methane gas (CH4). In some cases, a combination of landfill gas and Organic Bio Digestors will be used to maximize the facility efficiency.

GTM’s circular waste management facilities deal with plastic and organic waste in a way that produces stored energy resources such as diesel and methane gas as well as several other marketable products including asphalt, carbon, benzine, and in some cases liquid fertilizer and clean compost onsite. Providing a direct revenue stream to be sold. 

The buyback systems are designed to motivate and force a change in perception of the plastics value to encourage people to separate, store and trade the plastic.
