Diesel Fuel from Plastics Waste

Envosmart, a Dutch environmental technology company, plans to build 15 plants in 14 European Union countries that will produce diesel fuel from plastics waste. The first plant will be built in Germany after the summer and will produce 38 million liters of diesel per year by processing 42,000 tons of plastics waste.

Envosmart will sign a licensing agreement with Ozmotech, the Australian company that developed the technology to transform plastics waste to diesel fuel. The production process is said to be environmentally friendly, and captures most of the polluting gases and liquids. The fuel produced can then be used in any standard diesel engine in trucks, buses, boats, trains, heavy equipment and generators.
