Tackling Plastic Pollution with Mura’s Recycling Process
The impact and burden of end-of-life plastic and its effect on human health, wildlife and the environment is ever prevalent in the news.
With the UK’s recycling rate at just 45%, the majority of plastic packaging is sent to incineration or landfill, resulting in environmental plastic pollution and increasing CO2 emissions. A solution is urgently needed to tackle the rising volume of waste plastic.
With the goal of 1,000,000 tonnes of annual plastic waste recycling in operation or development by 2025, Mura Technology have developed an exciting new advanced recycling solution for all type of plastic waste.
Holding the Key to Recycling Plastic Waste
Mura’s proprietary technology, HydroPRS™, is an advanced recycling process able to convert end-of-life plastics back into the chemical and oils from which they were made, for use in the petrochemical industry in the production of new plastic and other materials. This broadens the scope of recyclable plastic materials, and helps to create a circular economy for plastic.
The process utilises the Cat-HTR™ technology at its core, a platform developed by Licella Holdings Pty., which uses supercritical water, heat and pressure via hydrothermal liquefaction to break long-chain hydrocarbons, donating hydrogen to produce shorter-chain, stable hydrocarbon products.Find Out More
