Overview of The
Plastic2Power USA (P2P-USA) was developed to design and prepare our
Plastic2Power International (P2PI) plastic waste management solution business model for launch.
P2P-USA currently maintains offices in Las Vegas, Nevada, but intends to relocate to California in early 2020 to build out its design teams. They will further develop our proposed waste management processing sites and collection networks.
The P2PI business model remains in the start-up mode, after many years of development and refinement. Projects have been rendered for the Caribbean region, which will be developed in 2020, provided the local, state and federal political will exists to further develop it.
In our process, we place ground waste Plastic and tires into separate processing systems, to produce oil to fuel electrical generators to make power for a network of vertical farms that produce food and cannabis.
APVG will likely relocate to the Puerto Rico, California or Florida coast where plastic waste reduction is taken seriously, and proposed regional waste management solution model can in fact be launched successfully.
P2PI proposes to use a well known, proven and environmentally friendly waste processing method called Pyrolysis (Pyro = heat. Lysis = break down), to convert mixed waste plastic packaging into usable low sulphur fuel oil.
This plastic oil can be used for generating electrical power or for transportation fuel, and we intend to use it for both. Surplus plastic oil will fuel our trucks and ships,
Plastic Pyrolysis consists of inducing a chemical reaction, that involves the molecular breakdown (of larger molecules into smaller molecules) in the presence of heat, within a vacuum. It is known or referred to as thermal cracking, cracking, thermolysis, depolymerization, etc.
Under the P2PI proposed operation, mixed waste plastics are collected, shredded and continuously fed into a pyrolysis reactor via a feeding system, at a rate of up to 30 tons per day, per line. These materials are pre-heated during the conveying process, then we complete the pyrolysis reaction with a high-efficiency catalyst.
The pyrolysis (plastic) oil gas is turned into high quality, low sulphur fuel oil, with a small amount of combustible gas used to heat the reactor itself. All reducing the carbon footprint this waste would otherwise create long-term, while emitting no harmful toxins into the air.
The P2P waste management model will become "The Plastic Packaging Waste Solution" suitable for any city worldwide, that is interested in addressing their own growing plastic waste issues. The primary end goal is to capture and end the life cycle of all waste plastic packaging to reduce landfill space in general, but prevent these waste products from reaching the oceans.
Consider that for every ten (10) pounds of waste plastic packaging recovered, a gallon of low Sulphur fuel oil can be reclaimed. The Las Vegas market creates over 300 tons of waste plastic per day, representing over 72,000 gallons of lost oil dumped into local Las Vegas landfills daily (26.3 million gallons or 625,700 Barrels of oil lost annually - just in Las Vegas).
Our initial market remains the Caribbean, based out of Puerto Rico, where we intend to establish 10 lines to process 300 tons per day of mixed plastic waste collected within the greater Caribbean, and convert it to over 70,000 gallons of oil daily. Most will be used to fuel a network of 250 Mega Watt per day power generators, to provide electricity for our onsite operations, including vertical farming, and atmospheric water making.
When you add the amount of waste plastic already stored in local landfills, or worse, the 8 to 12 million tons of new plastic waste estimated to be entering our oceans annually, over 45 million barrels of oil is indirectly dumped into the environment each year. One can see this is a growing crisis that must be dealt with. Despite these facts, no consumer outrage is ever seen. Why is that?
The Plastic2Power waste management solution will help address that lack of outrage and reclaim a valuable unnatural resource, even as oil prices drop to below USD $60 per barrel. These low oil prices over the past several years has led to an ongoing lack of investor interest to risk capital to complete the build-out phases, which further reduced the political will on a federal, state and local level to implement such a waste solution. Until now!
The goal of P2P remains to build-out and prove its business model, then showcase the ability to duplicate similar P2P operations in other regions. California offers a friendly political environment, and once proven, using recovered plastic fuel oil to generate power, or for local transportation and jet fuels, especially in remote island countries, offers a cost effective alternative to manage this waste issue.
