Tackling Plastic Pollution with Cat-HTR™
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 500,000 tonnes of annual plastic waste recycling in development by 2025, Mura Technology present Cat-HTR™ – the future of plastic recycling.
Holding the Key to Recycling Plastic Waste
Mura’s proprietary patented technology, Cat-HTR™ (Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor), 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.
Cat-HTR™ 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
