The process and the treasure box
GOZO processes almost everything. The plastic waste needs no actual pre-sorting, no shredding and no pre-cleaning. PET and PVC should be sorted out. These two substances are relatively easy to recognize and recycling cycle for the two exist already almost in everywhere.
- PET and PVC should be sorted out. These two substances are relatively easy to recognize, and recycling cycle for the two exist already almost everywhere. One type of Pyrolysis process can handle most plastic types without being crushed. Waste does not need to be clean before the procedure.
- Plastics are fed directly to the pyrolysis reactor. The reaction is a thermal decomposition, The vapors generated at a temperature of about 400 ° C pass through a filter which removes the solid elements.
- After filtering, the gases cool and form a liquid fuel. When used in different ways for energy recovery (motors, thermal energy or generator, electrical energy), the process is called pyrolysis.
- The non-plastic materials and the solid elements are separated. Inert materials (steel, copper, etc.) are recyclable.
What Does GOZO Need Now?
GOZO is in need of a partner to finance the final development phase. The prototype of the compact and mobile pyrolysis plant has already passed functional testing successfully. Now GOZO should gain marketability through improvements. The goal is to further develop the GOZO machine from the batch process to continuous operation to increase the economic efficiency of the machine. At the end of 2020, the first 3 GOZO containers should be ready for travel around the world.
