Get to Know Our Plastic Oil Production Process

As of the early 2023 onwards, PlastEco Ltd. will start the production of plastic oil from recycled plastic. We employ a distributed recycling solution to minimize transporting waste avoiding harmful environmental effects. Our process significantly improves the recycling of plastic waste as we redirect waste plastics from burning into a newly reusable raw material.

Our equipment produces 1000 liters of clean plastic oil from 1000 kilograms of plastic waste, which is completely reusable as a raw material of plastics. Gas produced as a byproduct of the process is completely used as the energy source for the process.


Firstly, Salpakierto Ltd. receives the waste and sorts plastic materials from mixed waste.



Afterwards, the plastics are washed, sliced, and thermo-chemically processed into its original raw materials.


As a result the produced plastic oil will be used as a replacement of crude oil in the petrochemical industry for production of different types of plastics.


Technology partner Biofabrik GmbH

Biofabrik’s modular WASTX Plastic technology transforms plastic waste into recycling oil – which gets back into the raw material cycle as a basis for recycled plastics.
