FAQ

Can I Buy One?
Right now we are developing our technology and business plan for regional and then global distribution along a service-based model that is affordable. Please send us an enquiry with your location, your industrial needs, and your plastic problem and we will respond ASAP to set up a call.

Are These The Only Machines in the World?
They are not, but we are very confident these machines cost 60% less than available competing machines, with greater efficiency as well as being more flexible and agile.

Do You Export Them Anywhere?
During 2019, we are aiming to sell and deploy machines close to our manufacturing facilities in Johannesburg, South Africa for ease of service and monitoring. We expect this to expand quite rapidly through distributors, so look for global machine delivery in 2020.

Isn’t Burning Plastic Bad?
We aren’t burning plastic, but changing it into a gas in a contained oxygen-free environment. This means the process itself is emission free, and that the gasses don’t escape. Similar to an alcohol distillation unit refining whiskey from a mash, if the gasses leak you lose your valuable single-malt. Our system wastes nothing, with the gas either being re-condensed into usable fuels, or fed directly into a generator to create electricity.

Are There Dangerous Emissions?
There are in-fact no emissions from the our pyrolysis process, however our system uses some of the fuels to run the next burn and there is some pollution, like from a petrol or diesel car. All gasses from the plastic are harvested, this is our fuel, and we do not let it escape. That said, if you then combust those fuels in an engine, such as a car, there will be emissions just like any fuel source but our fuels are low in sulphur and have a lower emissions profile than traditional petroleum fuels.  Considering the carbon offset created from not needing to mine and transport normal fossil fuels from one end of the globe to the other, our fuels offer a low-carbon alternative between 25 to 72% less carbon emissions from regular fuel.

Is It Safe?
Our machine is operating below 1 bar of pressure (14 psi) and thus falls below thresholds that would require new permitting in most jurisdictions or generate serious safety concerns. The system is more like running a large commercial gas or diesel electrical generator. The system is a heat driven process, but it is digitally controlled with built in safety redundancies that are over-engineered for safety by experts with over 20 years of experience in the gas services industry.
