The Cynar Technology

The Cynar TAC Technology consists of the efficient and effective conversion of end of life plastics to alternative liquid transport fuels. Suitable end of life plastics are pre-processed to reduce size and remove any contaminants or non-plastic materials from the feedstock. The shredded plastics and are then loaded via a hot melt in-feed system directly into main chambers. Agitation commences to even the temperature and homogenise the feedstocks. TAC then commences and the plastic becomes a vapour. Non-plastic materials fall to the bottom of the chamber.

The vapour from the chambers passes into the contactor, which knocks back the long chained carbons and allows the required condensable vapours to pass into the distillation column. The system diverts the non-condensable synthetic gas through a scrubber and then back into the furnaces to heat the chambers. The condensable vapours are then converted in the distillation column to produce lite oil and raw diesel. The lite oil is put into storage. The raw diesel is passed to the vacuum distillation column to be further refined to produce diesel, kerosene and lite oil; the distillates then pass into the recovery tanks.

The TAC system is the prime chamber, which performs the essential functions of homogenisation and controlled decomposition in a single process. The Cynar Technology process requires minimal maintenance and produces a consistent quality distillate from end of life plastic.
