Bin2Barrel, a Dutch company focusing on the development of Plastic-to projects, has started construction of a new facility that will convert non-recyclable plastic into fuel for the maritime transport sector.
An approximate EUR 28 million government grant has been offered to the firm to construct a recycling facility that is able to produce more than 30 million litres of fuel per year out of 35,000 tonnes of non-recyclable plastic.
The plant will be built in collaboration with Port of Amsterdam and is expected to be up and running by the end of 2018.
The flow of non-recyclable plastic comes from Dutch waste collectors and processors, who would otherwise just burn waste for lack of any other applications.
In combustion of the produced fuel, the return on energy is nearly three times higher (80%) than in direct burning of plastic in waste incinerators (33%).
“The use of plastic and the lack of a proper processing of plastic cause massive pollution worldwide,” says Roon van Maanen, Head of Circular & Renewable Industry at Port of Amsterdam.
“Bin2Barrel introduces innovative and badly needed technology that will enable us to make use of a currently non-recyclable flow of waste in a manner that makes perfect sense.
“By creating a new product from an otherwise problematic waste product, Bin2Barrel fits perfectly within the mission of Port of Amsterdam to facilitate energy transition as well as transition to a circular economy.”
