How do I prepare for the Technip process

RECENSO and Technip Energies join forces in sustainable plastic recycling

Technip Energies and RECENSO have entered into an agreement in the field of sustainable plastics-to-plastics chemical recycling. The joint objective will combine RECENSO’s proprietary CARBOLIQ technology with Technip Energies ’leading purification technologies to offer high-value solutions for generating liquid feedstock from plastic waste to be readily used in existing facilities to produce sustainable polymers.

With waste becoming a resource, one of the biggest challenges involves the variability and composition of plastic waste. By combining the robustness of the CARBOLIQ process with Technip Energies ’experience in the design and realization of monomer and polymer processes, the growing plastic recycling market will be served with a complete end-to-end waste-to-plastics solution.

The engineers of RECENSO have developed the CARBOLIQ process that makes it possible to convert various plastic wastes into a valuable liquid hydrocarbon oil. Their first installation in 24/7 operation is located at the municipal waste management center in Ennigerloh, Germany. Along with the Technip Energies ’purification process, CARBOLIQ’s recycled oil becomes a circular feedstock for steam crackers.

Technip Energies is a leading Engineering & Technology company with strong positions in sustainable chemistry and expertise in process design and plant engineering services with 60 years of experience. Its proprietary portfolio includes technologies and equipment for steam crackers, catalytic crackers and refinery off gas recovery units. Technip Energies is able to support clients in their energy transition journey, combining experience and proprietary modeling techniques with leading pyrolysis technology providers to bring innovative solutions to the commercial markets.
