We develop technological solutions that enable re-using used resources. A focus is on used resources that are currently being landfilled or incinerated. Over these years, we have been zooming in on streams that contain both organic and non-organic matter. Examples are laminate materials (drink cartons, tooth paste tubes, pouches etc.) and mixed plastics, but also biomass streams such as sludges, rice husk and other similar streams. With our technology we are able to separate the organic from the inorganic matter, so recovering useable resources, typically oil and metals or minerals.
For a paper mill customer we built an installation that allows the full recycling of drink carton laminates. These materials can now be re-used: plastics are separated from the aluminum layers and recycled back into oil and aluminum! It is the world’s first installation of its kind and has made Alucha the reference company in pyrolysis systems, with over 15,000 hours of operational experience. Currently, with our partner Andritz we are rolling out this system worldwide. At the same time we keep on developing solutions for other streams of used resources.
