Resynergi manufactures continuous microwave-assisted pyrolysis (“CMAP”) systems which use microwave (RF) energy and catalytic processing to quickly convert waste plastics into hydrocarbon products, including diesel and naphtha. Resynergi acquired the CMAP technology from Dr. Roger Ruan and the University of Minnesota, and uses Dr. Ruan’s base microwave reactor design in its current commercial pilot CMAP system that converts approximately one tonne of waste plastic (HDPE, LDPE, and PP) per day into approximately 200 gallons of liquid hydrocarbons. Resynergi’s goal is to help solve the environmental and commercial issues of waste plastic disposal through efficient, economic, and ecologically friendly processes and to provide valuable alternative low-sulfur fuels, chemical feedstock to remake plastic, and other advanced carbon products such as graphene and carbon nanotubes.
