[ENVEX 2020] City Oil Field to introduce waste plastic decomposition treatment and energy recovery technology

City Oil Field will participate in the 42nd International Exhibition on Environmental Technology & Green Energy (ENVEX 2020) to be held at COEX from June 17 (Wed) to 19 (Fri) to introduce waste plastic decomposition treatment and energy recovery technology.
Since its foundation in 1980 (formerly known as the National Institute of Homeland Life Sciences'), it has been continuously researching the fields of waste treatment, odor removal, and green algae removal by using ceramic emission waves for over 30 years. After many years of research, it has developed a new functional high-tech ceramic ball that generates ultraviolet rays at 120~270℃ and process technology for eco-friendly decomposing low-grade waste plastics, and technology for refining clean liquid fuel generated as a by-product into high-quality fuel that can be used in the field, and they will soon be commercialized.
An official said, "We are a company that has been researching air, water, and waste treatment fields for many years, and we developed this technology to overcome the limitations of conventional waste plastics processing technology. The waste plastic decomposition treatment solution is largely composed of a two-step process."
The plant consists of a first decomposition treatment facility and a second refinement step facility, and various types of UV-emitting ceramic balls made from natural minerals are optimized for each stage's purpose. As the temperature rises, UV waves are emitted from the ceramic balls located inside the completely sealed metal tank to decompose by cracking the carbon-carbon bonds of the waste plastic, and the decomposed material is recovered as high-quality light oil through a secondary refinement process. do.
Also, since the decomposed residue is regenerated as a high-calorie, high-carbon solid fuel through a series of processes including a separation process from foreign substances, the waste discarded after the waste plastic treatment is 10% which is very low, and the energy recovery rate is very high.
On the overseas business direction, the official said, "The waste plastic recycling industry is closely related to the policies of each country, so we are contacting foreign personnel from the Ministry of Environment of each country and environmental personnel of the United Nations (UN, EU, etc.) to enter the global market. "We have contacted the officials from the UK, EU Gateway, and UN OSD and already received positive responses on our technology, and achieved visible results such as the establishment of joint ventures with large Chinese companies."
He then continued, "We want to establish a network with buyers or partners in charge of environmental ministries of countries with serious waste plastics problems or insufficient waste plastics processing technology, to enter a broader market without limiting itself to countries and institutions."
Marking its 42nd year this year, ENVEX 2020 has been serving as the business venue every year to help domestic environmental companies develop domestic and overseas markets. It has attracted 1,000 overseas buyers to provide business matching with the exhibitors in Korea.
