ALARMING FACTS ABOUT GLOBAL PLASTIC WASTE!

An estimated 6.3 billion tons of plastic waste had been generated as of 2015, of which only 9% was recycled. If current plastic production and waste management trends continue, 12 billion tons of plastic will be in landfills, the oceans and the natural environment by 2050.

​Global plastic production was reported to be around 299 million metric tons in 2013, which significantly increased to 335 million metric tons in 2016.  

​It has been calculated that 275 million metric tons of plastic waste was generated in 192 coastal countries in 2010, with up to 12.7 million tons entering the ocean in a single year. Following this trend, the total weight of plastic in the oceans will exceed the weight of fish by 2050!

​The United Nations reported that the approximate environmental damage caused by plastic to marine ecosystems comes to approximately 15 billion US Dollars and growing exponentially.

PETRONIX PYROCATALYSIS TECHNOLOGY

PYROCATALYSIS (HERCULES 1) PROCESSING PLANT

HERCULES PYROCATALYSIS PROCESSING PLANT

HERCULES SERIES 2 - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

THE HERCULES SERIES 2 is a completely re-designed and technologically super-charged Waste Plastic to Fuel Production System designed and manufactured by PETRONIX INDUSTRIES. It features clean, efficient operation, and production of high quality, low sulfur, synthetic fuel from a wide range of waste plastics.
After producing numerous fully functioning systems over a period of several years, Petronix Industries team of scientists and engineers broke new ground with creation of the Hercules Series 2. This model features cutting edge, industry-leading, unrivaled eco-friendly application of Petronix Industries proprietary PYROCATALYSIS technology.

Key Features: Production capacity of converting 25,000 kilograms of plastic into an average of 18,000 liters of pyrolysis crude oil equivalent (similar to Brent Light Sweet Crude). A fully continuous, fully enclosed reactor allowing no noxious fumes to be released into the atmosphere. Non-stop“Continuous” operation, 24 hours a day, 330 days per year.

Production Specifications: Projected production from 25 tons plant per day is: - Diesel – 15,000 – 16,000 liters (60-65%), Naphtha – 14-15%, Wax – 7- 8%, Gas – 7% (Used to fuel the combustion thru an internally connected chamber)
Feedstock: The Hercules Series 2 accepts most types of waste plastic. Preferred feedstock is Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP) and Polystyrene (PS) with a projected fuel yield of up to 70%.

Heating the Reactor: Most traditional fuel source can be used to initially heat the reactor depending on cost and local availability. The Hercules Series 2features a closed cycle system of channeling gas and solid byproducts of the process, back to provide up to 50% of heating fuel needed.
Electrical Power Consumption: 55kW per hour, or less than one kWh of electricity per liter of fuel produced.

Manpower: 24-hour operation takes a workforce of 9 persons – 2-3 staffs per eight-hour shift.
Service Life: The Hercules Series 2 has a longer lifespan than most systems available on the market. Minimum service life is 7 years. Life Expectancy: more than 10 years.
Emissions: Exhaust from the furnace heating the Hercules Series 2 is sent through a scrubber unit before being released as excess heat and a small amount of CO2. This means that the system produces virtually no pollutants whatsoever – whether into the air, ground or waterways.

PETRONIX INDUSTRIES PRODUCES FUEL CONTAINING 0.01% OF SULFUR

International Standards to Reduce Emissions from Marine Diesel Engines and Their Fuels

Cargo ship emitting toxic sulfur into the atmosphere.

ALARMING FACTS!

A 20 foot container being shipped from Shanghai to Hamburg emits approximately 37 kilos of sulfur. This is equivalent to 3,950 cars emissions during the same period of time.
An entire container ship at 8,000 TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit) sailing from Shanghai to Hamburg emits as much sulfur as 31.6 million cars emits during its 28 days at sea!

This means that only 24 of 8000 TEU containerships emit as much sulfur as the ENTIRE WORLD WIDE FLEET OF CARS!

Overview of Diesel Standards

image36

Before EPA began regulating sulfur in diesel, diesel fuel contained as much as 5,000 parts per million (ppm) of sulfur. EPA began regulating diesel fuel sulfur levels in 1993. Beginning in 2006, EPA began to phase-in more stringent regulations to lower the amount of sulfur in diesel fuel to 15 ppm. This fuel is known as ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD). EPA’s diesel standards target emissions from two different sources:


  • Onroad (or highway) vehicles; and
  • Nonroad engines and equipment.

Collectively, diesel standards reduce harmful emissions from both onroad and nonroad diesel sources by more than 90%.


International Fuel Standards for Emission Control Areas (ECAs)

Passenger cruise ship discharging toxic sulfuric fumes into the atmosphere.

Ocean-going vessels and large ships traditionally used “bunker fuel” with sulfur levels as high as 5%, or 50,000 ppm, sulfur.  Bunker fuel burned on these ships was a large source of harmful air pollution in the U.S.

An international treaty designated two Emission Control Areas (ECA) covering U.S. waters. The North America ECA extends 200 miles from the shores of North America, and the U.S. Caribbean Sea ECA covers waters around Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The sulfur content of the fuel used in marine vessels operating in these ECAs may not exceed 0.10 weight percent (1000 ppm).

Note that a global sulfur cap of 3.50 weight percent applies outside of ECA boundaries. This limit decreases to 0.50 weight percent in 2020.
