The key factor for thermolysis is to provide the processor with feed stock with zero-oxygen in order to create an exothermic reaction, a chemical or physical reaction that releases heat. Due to the construction of our feeder, we are continuously able to feed the processor feed stock without letting the oxygen into our processor.
The feeder construction is unique and superior other technologies due to
allowing the production to be run 24/7.
An exothermic reaction is a chemical or physical reaction that releases heat. It gives net energy to its surroundings. That is, the energy needed to initiate the reaction is less than the energy that is subsequently released. Depending on materials the exact constant temperature in the process is crucial. In order to achieve the most efficient constant temperature for the exothermic reaction, the PROWST has a unique technique for controlling and regulating the temperature during the process.
The output from the PROWST® process unit, oil, gas, carbon black and some ash is gathered and stored in different containers. The oil and gas can be used to produce electricity via a power plant. The excess heat is taken care of via different heat exchanges and that energy can be converted to electricity or/and cooling for buildings such as hospitals or universities. All is depending to the agreement considering the plant.
In a circular economy, the value of products and materials is maintained for as long as possible. The EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy outlines a set of both general and material-specific actions. While some obstacles to a circular economy are generic, different sectors and materials face specific challenges due to the particularities of the value chain. The Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs cooperates with other Commission departments on the following actions.
• Product design • Production process • Consumption • From waste to resources (secondary raw materials) • Innovation, investment and other cross-cutting issues •
A number of materials and sectors face specific challenges in the context of the circular economy. Waste Reform is active in the ”From Waste to Resources” sector.
