In a world facing plastic management problems, plastic pyrolysis plant offers an efficient solution for waste plastic recycling. Pyrolysis, a process that involves heating plastic waste to generate pyrolysis oil, is gaining traction as a viable disposal method. As an experienced manufacturer, Beston Group offers waste plastic pyrolysis plants equipped with advanced technology. Our plastic-to-oil solution is increasingly becoming the first choice for recyclers around the world.

Negative Impacts of Plastic Misuse

Plastic misuse has many negative consequences. It not only destroys the ecological environment but also hinders the sustainable development of society. With growing concern over the destructive impact of plastic waste, how to find an efficient plastic recycling solution has become an issue.

Waste Plastic Destroy Ecological Chain

Destroy Ecological Chain

  • Many marine creatures accidentally eat plastic garbage or become entangled in it, causing their death or blocking migration.
  • Plastic breaks down into microplastics. It enters the human body through the food chain. Thus, this poses a threat to health.
Waste Plastic Aggravate Environmental Pollution

Aggravate Environmental Pollution

  • Soil Pollution: plastic products release harmful substances after natural decomposition or weathering for a long time. This results in soil contamination.
  • Air Pollution: Plastic releases toxic gases and particles when incinerated or degraded. This hurts air quality and even harms human health.
Waste Plastic Excessive Energy Consumption

Consum Excessive Energy

  • Crude oil is the raw material for plastic manufacturing. Thus, massive production and use of plastics will increase the demand for crude oil.
  • Refining hydrocarbons involves considerable energy consumption. Besides, polymerization reaction in plastic manufacturing is also energy-intensive.​
Waste Plastic Occupy Social Resources

Occupy Social Resources

  • Recycling plastic waste is technically demanding and expensive. Therefore, waste plastic recycling requires a large investment of financial resources;
  • Plastic recycling requires a large amount of human resource investment, including recycling personnel, technical personnel, management personnel, etc.

Plastic Pyrolysis Plant Creates Closed-loop Recycling Mode

Plastic is mainly made from the polymerization of olefins in petroleum. This is a structurally stable polymer material. However, higher molecular weight brings greater difficulty in degradation. This makes recycling plastic more difficult. Plastic pyrolysis machine alleviates this problem. The plastic pyrolysis process is carried out under high temperatures and micro-oxygen conditions. This reaction breaks the polyolefin polymer chain and decomposes it into small molecules. Pyrolysis oil is the main product of the reaction. Olefin substances such as gasoline and diesel are its main components. Therefore, plastic pyrolysis is a “where it comes from, where it ends” process.

Suitability of Different Plastic for Plastic Pyrolysis Plant

There are many types of plastic. However, not all plastic types are suitable for pyrolysis processing. If you are planning to launch a plastic pyrolysis recycling project, we can perform experimental measurements on the plastics you need to process. The following are some common plastic types and their suitability for waste plastic pyrolysis plant.

Working Process of Plastic Pyrolysis Equipment


Plastic Feeding

  • Pretreatment: Packing or squeezing and cutting into blocks
  • Optional feeding methods: manual feeding/hydraulic feeding/screw feeding

Plastic Pyrolysis

  • Preheating: Natural gas/diesel/heavy oil burner provides a heat source for preheating. The preheating time is about 3 hours.
  • Reaction begins: The entire plastic pyrolysis process takes place in a microaerobic environment. At the same time, the working pressure does not exceed 20kPa. When the reaction temperature reaches 180°C, pyrolysis oil and gas begin to be generated. When the temperature in the pyrolysis reactor reaches 280-320°C, the reaction tends to be stable.
  • Reaction ends: When the oil output decreases and the oil turns dark brown, the pyrolysis reaction ends.

Plastic Oil Formation

  • High-temperature oil gas first enters the catalytic tower. Under the action of the catalyst, the clogging problem of wax oil is alleviated.
  • The oil and gas then enter the manifold. The heavy oil substances in the oil and gas are separated and fall into the residual oil tank.
  • The separated oil and gas enter the condenser. Then, the condensable portion forms pyrolysis oil and falls into the oil storage tank.
  • The non-condensable portion enters the water seal. This part is purified by a water seal to form syngas. Syngas enter the burner system to provide a heat source for the main furnace.

Solid Discharging

In cooperation with the reactor, the screw extractor discharges the solid residue. In addition, the waste-cooled screw extractor can quickly cool the temperature of solid residues for easy collection.


Exhaust Gas Treatment

  • The high-temperature exhaust gas enters the cooling tower and emission deduster through the induced draft fan. The chimney emits cleaned exhaust gas.
  • We provide high-end exhaust gas treatment system. The exhaust gas treated by this system can meet EU emissions standards.

Application of Plastic Pyrolysis Oil

Pyrolysis oil is the main product of plastic pyrolysis plant. Plastic pyrolysis oil has a wide range of uses in various industries.

Plastic Pyrolysis Oil for Industrial Production

Destroy Ecological Chain

Plastic pyrolysis oil has a high calorific value, which can provide a stable fuel supply and provide the required heat energy in industrial production. This includes industrial sites such as glass factories, steel factories, power plants, ceramic factories, cement factories, etc.

Plastic Pyrolysis Oil for Further Processing

Further Processing

  • Refineries refine pyrolysis oil and convert it into commercial gasoline and diesel;
  • Distillation equipment processes pyrolysis oil to obtain non-standard diesel.
Plastic Pyrolysis Oil for Plastic Manufacturing

Plastic Reproduction

Plastic pyrolysis oil can be used in plastic remanufacturing processes. This production model realizes a closed loop of resources in the plastics industry. Additionally, the utilization of pyrolysis oil reduces the need for new plastic production. This reduces the consumption of natural resources.


Oil Yield of Different Types of Plastic

After being processed in a Beston waste plastic pyrolysis machine, oil yield rates differ from plastic types. In addition, the complexity of the plastic composition also affects the oil yield. Generally speaking, plastics with higher purity have higher oil yield rates. Below are the oil yield rates of some common plastic products for your reference.
