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.
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.
