We have received various questions on plastic waste, PP/PE/PS such as PET Bottle caps
In this page we provide you frequently asked questions and please look into them before you send us questions.

If you have other questions not listed here please use the specific contact form.

Q1 What kind of plastics can be converted to oil?
A1 Recyclable plastics are polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) and polystyrene (PS). Plastics should be clean before putting into the Blest Machine.
Q2 What kind of oil is converted from plastics?

【 In case of PP・PE 】
PP and PE will be converted to oil, which contains gasoline equivalent, kerosene equivalent, diesel equivalent and heavy oil. So, we call this oil “Mixed Oil”.

【 In case of PS 】
PS oil does not contain gasoline equivalent, kerosene equivalent, diesel equivalent and heavy oil.
PS oil contains styrenemonomer, styrene dimer and styrene trimer. PS oil can be used as assistant fuel.
Or, if you purify PS oil, you can get Styrenemnomer rich, which is raw material for plastic.

So, if you need gasoline equivalent or diesel equivalent, please process PP & PE.

Q3 What is a Hydrocarbon Oil Refiner?

We have BOR-20 and BOR-50.
The BOR-20 and BOR-50 are capable of refining batches of mixed oil into Gasoline, Kerosene, Diesel Oil and Heavy Oil Equivalents.

We can not guarantee the above portion, because it depends on plastic materials. The specification of each oil is not exactly equal to Japanese Industrial Standards, nor equal to USA Standard Oil.

Q4 How about the portion of each refined oil?
A4 Averagely,
Gasoline equivalent : 15-20%
Kerosene equivalent : 20-30%
Diesel oil equivalent : 20-30%
Heavy oil equivalent : Remains.
Q5 How much oil can oiling machine convert 1kg plastic waste to oil?
A5 Averagely, 1Kg plastic waste is converted to 1 L oil. It depends on plastic waste.
Q6 Why cannot our system accept PET or PVC?

1) Hydrogen chloride and Dioxin are generated in processing PVC.

2) The pyrolysis gas from PET will be sublimated under our operating temperature range.
T/fore, you cannot get oil ( Liquid ) from PET.
Sublimation means solid – gas – solid , that is , no Liquid condition. So, if you put some PET into our equipment, it can be solid in our equipment, and makes operation trouble.

It is said that PET can be converted to oil at approx. 600℃. Our operating temperature range is 400℃ – 450℃.

Q7 What is maximum size?
A7 Our highest capacity model is NVG-2000. ( 2,000Kgs/24Hrs ).
Q8 How about gases or residue?

The gases (Methane, Ethane, Propane, Butane and so on) is generated, as we call them Hydrocarbon Gas.. But we install “Hydrocarbon Gas Filter” into our machine, which decompose Hydrocarbon Gas into harmless materials (Water and Carbon Dioxide).

The residual product remains in a residue tank and that portion is very small, like a few percentage, which depends on plastics waste.

Q9 How the oil made by plastic to oil converter can be used?
A9 It can be used as fuel for ordinal boiler or incinerator and used for the bi-fuel power generator ATG we offer.
ATG can use used food oil as alternative fuel.
Q10 If the mixed oil made by plastic to oil converter distilled, what application can be expected?
A10 Distilled oil can be separated to gasoline, kerosene, diesel oil and heavy oil. They are usable for internal combustible engines.
Q11 How much weigh the compact plastic to I oil converter Be-h?
A11 it weighs about 50 Kg
Q12 By using plastic to oil converter, how does it reduce the carbon dioxide?
A12 By using the machine, the emission will be reduced 2077 gram than burning the 1kg of plastics.*
*This figure is not considered as guaranteed figure but for reference.
Q13 What is the dimension of the Be-h?
A13 560 (W) x 320 (D) x 500 (H) in mm.
Q14 What is the power consumption for Be-h?
A14 1 KW/Hr.
