Plastic To Chemicals
Petrogas and BlueAlp, in collaboration with consortium partners Den Hartog and RenaSci, started producing oil from plastic. Under the leadership of Petrogas’ Chief Technology Officer Chris van der Ree, a team of engineers at the site in Ostend, Belgium, sent the first oil to the storage tanks.
We have spent over 10 years developing and refining this innovative process, so the fact that we produced the first oil today is a spectacular milestone. Not only for our companies and partners, but above all for the contribution this will make to a sustainable world, “says Chris van der Ree. In the coming period, the process will be optimized and the broad spectrum of products that this factory can produce will be explored.
