The Agilyx Process
Agilyx uses a patented, fully permitted process that converts ground waste plastic into synthetic crude oil. The Agilyx technology provides for the ability to scale the processing capacity to meet a customer's requirements by combining multiple base systems together. One common exhaust system manages the hot air produced by all of the processing units, while one state-of-the-art Environmental Control Device scrubs all of the non-condensable gases, ensuring that the system meets the most stringent air quality requirements. The innovative Supervisory Station, with touch screens and a graphical user interface, allows operators to easily monitor and manage all parts of the system from one central location.
Indirect Heating of Waste Plastic
Specially designed cartridges are filled with prepared feedstock and then placed in a large processing vessel called a Plastic Reclamation Unit. Hot air is heated with a light industrial burner and recirculated around the cartridge, transforming the plastic feedstock from a solid to a liquid to a gas.
Gasification and Movement
Using a combination of temperature and vacuum (or negative pressure), the gases are pulled from the cartridge into a central condensing system.
Condensing Gases into Oil
In the condensing system, the gases are cooled and condensed into synthetic crude oil. Waste impurities are then removed from the stream and lightweight gases that do not condense continue further downstream where they are treated by an Environmental Control Device.
Final Transfer and Storage of Oil
The crude oil product leaving the condensing system enters into a coalescing and settling process and is eventually transferred to an exterior aboveground storage tank.
