Mixed Plastics

Globally mixed and contaminated plastics are a major disposal problem and environmental issues. Many material recovery facilities (MRFs) produce plastics with high levels of contaminants, such as glass fines, rendering them unrecyclable. In Australia only 12% of plastics are recycled.

Wildfire Energy's MIHG technology can be applied to recover energy from mixed plastics residuals that can't be recycled and are destined for landfill.

 Configuration

Mixed plastics are co-fed with other general wastes into the MIHG energy recovery facility. The total plastics can be >40 wt% of the waste feedstock. 

 Results

  • Reduced plastics sent to landfill

  • Beneficial use in production of energy products
