Emispec returns from a trip to the outskirts of Turin in Italy on the site of our partner WPT Italy to attend tests for the conversion of plastic waste in the form of inert, odorless, refuse-derived-fuel (RDF) fuel.
The WP Processor platform processes unsorted raw waste materials containing plastic, paper, glass, metal, as well as small aggregates and sand. The technology is currently in operation on private yachts as well as drilling rigs. The Royal Canadian Navy is currently studying the WP platform for deployment on frigates.
We are witnessing the emergence of a value chain for the recovery of urban waste and non-recyclable plastics for energy generation as a viable alternative to landfilling.
