In the United States (US), Enexor BioEnergy LLC (Enexor) has announced the release of its on-site, small-scale plastics-to-energy technology – the PTE-200, which converts unrecyclable plastics into "affordable energy" – 125 kW heat and 75 kW power. Enexor's PTE-200 distributed energy system will commence installations in Q3 starting in Latin America and Asia.
On a mission to help solve the world’s organic and plastic waste problem, Franklin, Tennesse (TN) based Enexor BioEnergy is developing systems that take into account the most impoverished communities in the world – those struggling with energy poverty and a rampant plastic waste problem. Recently the company launched its modular BIO-200 unit that converts “almost any” organic waste into on-site, clean and affordable energy.
According to the company, its PTE-200 is another “innovative solution” to help close the circular economy loop by deriving value from waste. The PTE-200 too is modular and scalable, with a rugged design that can be easily installed and monitored in some of the world’s most remote locations.
The design is built for installation near the source of plastic pollution, removing unrecyclable plastics from the waste stream entering rivers and oceans, and ultimately providing 24/7 continuous power critical to remote communities.
The majority of the world’s plastic pollution is located where the most disadvantaged people in the world live. These areas are also the most energy-deprived. Our PTE-200 systems can be installed where they are needed the most – at the convergence of plastic waste and energy impoverished communities. No one solution is going to solve this problem overnight, but we believe the PTE-200 is another viable resource to help solve this growing problem, said Lee Jestings, Founder and CEO of Enexor.
Additional applications for the PTE-200 include converting residual, unrecyclable plastic waste from material recycling facilities and industrial waste applications into clean energy.
As a company, we are committed to developing sustainable and small-scale organic waste to energy systems that help solve two important problems – energy poverty and plastic pollution – to make an essential social impact one community at a time, ended Lee Jestings.
