Transforming plastic waste into energy: GreenPlasma

Transforming plastic waste into energy: GreenPlasma

Did you know that more than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year?

CLAIM project partner and technology developer IRIS presents an animated video, showcasing the project’s innovative technology GreenPlasma (pyrolizer). The video demonstrates how plastic finds its way into the sea and proposes a measure to approach this issue timely by proposing GreenPlasma, an efficient method to convert plastic waste into energy.

How does it work?

IRIS GreenPlasma can be working either on a boat board or on the mainland. It collects plastic and breaks them into small pieces. These are transformed into a gas, due to the high temperatures reached (up to 700°C). The gas is then filtered in order to lose every contaminant. As a result, GreenPlasma produces hydrogen-rich syngas, which is used in an electrical generator to recharge batteries, delivering energy to electric devices like boats and bikes.
