NextChem is designing a model for a circular low-carbon future using proven and sustainable technologies
The Green Circular District can create value from recyclable plastic waste and waste that would have otherwise been incinerated or sent to landfill
A portion of the plastic waste can be mechanically recycled using our Upcycling MyReplast™ technology to create new high-quality recycled polymers
Non-recyclable plastic waste and dry fractions can be chemically transformed by recovering the carbon and hydrogen they contain using a process called partial oxidation, which does not use combustion and produces Circular Gas™, which is used to produce green chemicals and fuels.
Circular Gas™ can be used to produce hydrogen, methanol, ethanol, ammonia and many other essential derivatives used to produce fuels and all types of the items that we are surrounded by
The Green Circular District can also produce green hydrogen using an electrolysis process based on water and renewable energy. Hydrogen can be used as a fuel in industrial and civil applications, making it more and more the fuel of the future.
And, there is more – recycled polymers are used to produce new plastic goods (like car parts, for example), which, once their useful life has ended, will become waste and be recycled again.
