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 the plastic waste can be mechanically recycled using our Upcycling MyReplast™ technology to create new 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 hydrogen, methanol, ethanol, ammonia and many other essential derivatives used to produce fuels and all types of the items that we are surrounded by

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 a fuel in industrial and civil applications, making it more and more the fuel of the future.

Step 6

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.
