NextChem is designing a model for a circular low-carbon future using proven and sustainable technologies

Step 1

The Green Circular District can create value from recyclable plastic waste and waste that would have otherwise been incinerated or sent to landfill

The Model - Step 1

Step 2

A portion of plastic waste can be mechanically recycled with our MyReplast™ Upcycling technology to produce new high-quality recycled polymers high-quality recycled polymers

The Modello - Step 2

Step 3

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.

The Modello - Step 3

Step 4

Circular Gas™ can be used to produce Circular Hydrogen™, Circular Methanol™, Circular Ethanol™, ammonia, and many derivatives critical to producing fuels and many objects around us.

Step 5

The Green Circular District can also produce green hydrogen using an electrolysis process based on water and renewable energy. Hydrogen can be used as an industrial fuel and for public mobility and will increasingly be the fuel of the future.

Step 6

And, there is more – recycled polymers are used to produce new plastic goods (such as furniture, rigid packaging, and automotive components) that, once their useful life cycle is over, will become waste again and can be recycled again.
