How Much Does A Pyrolysis Plant Cost?

The pyrolysis plant cost is from USD 29,000 to 75,000. This price range is based on Beston products. Below are more details to know how much does a pyrolysis plant cost.

Factors That Influence Pyrolysis Plant Cost

Firstly, please know that the pyrolysis plant cost is influenced by many factors. It doesn’t equal to the pyrolysis machine price only. You should also take the shipping cost and operating cost into consideration, including fuel cost, raw material cost, worker salaries, maintenance cost, etc. In order to make it clear, please ask yourself more detailed questions.

What is the feedstock? And what form is it?

Pyrolysis system can process plastic, old tires, rubber products, oil sludge, and medical waste. Different materials need different auxiliary equipment. For example, if processing medical waste, you will need a sterilization system. Another example, if you buy whole tires, you may need a shredder to break them into small pieces.

How many tons of raw materials will you process?

Beston has different models of pyrolysis machine for sale, which can process about 6 to 24 tons per day. Generally, the price is getting higher with the increasing capacity.

What kind of working method do you want?  Batch, semi-continuous, or fully continuous?

Beston also has batch, semi-continuous, and fully continuous plants to choose from. The batch pyrolysis system will be cheaper than the semi-continuous. And the fully continuous pyrolysis machine is the most expensive. However, the fully continuous one is easy to operate, which will save your labor force input. So please remember to take the labor force into consideration as well. Below are some parameters of Beston pyrolysis equipment for your reference.

What products do you want to get through pyrolysis?

Through pyrolysis, you can get pyrolysis oil, carbon black, combustible gas, and steel wire from tires. Some may equip an oil distillation plant to refine pyrolysis oil to diesel to sell at a better price. While some may need to collect the combustible gas for other use. Of course, it will influence the total cost of pyrolysis plant.

Where is the plant to be located?

The location will affect space expenses. In general, the pyrolysis plant should be far from the residential zone, but with convenient transportation.

Is it environmentally compliant in your country?

Before setting up a pyrolysis plant, you need to get the related certificates. Besides, the local environmental policy will influence the equipment you need to buy. More than that, you can get free waste materials in some areas, which will lower your cost. Also, some governments have subsidies for waste recycling projects, for example, South Africa.

What are the available fuels, and which one is the cheapest?

The pyrolysis machine can be heated by coal, wood, natural gas, LPG, fuel oil, electricity, etc. But the design of the combustor system will be different. Some may use more than one kind of fuel. Also, the pyrolysis time and fuel consumption will be different as well. Of course, the cost will be different. When you get all the details, you can roughly figure out how much it costs to build a pyrolysis plant.

Beston Tips

  1. When you purchase a pyrolysis plant, please make clear what equipment and service are included, and what you need to buy extra.
  2. Do not rely on the pyrolysis machine price only during your purchase. Instead, please pay more attention to the ROI.

Below is a sample pyrolysis plant cost estimate from Beston for your reference.
