AMBRA and REIND start a Joint Venture for the recovery of oil from plastic waste

REIND company from Hungary has developed a system for the recovery of oil from specified plastic wastes.

In Hungary there are already some plants from REIND in operation. The purpose of our cooperation is to jointly work the national German market. The first project, which shall be started this year already, is especially intended to give proof of the successful large-scale operation on a sustained basis.

In addition, further waste types such as used tyres, plastic foils, electrical waste etc. will be tested, examined and developed in the large-scale operation.

Up to now, it has often been possible to guarantee a smooth process stability only with small amounts of input material.

The AMBRA REIND plant currently planned for Germany will treat considerably higher amounts of plastic waste with an annual capacity of 16,000 tons. As the system has a modular structure, it can be extended to 50,000 to 60,000 tons a year without difficulty. 

This project will be realized with permanent scientific assistance, and about 13 million litres of so-called “bunker fuel” und about 4.8 million cubic metres of high calorific gas will be produced from the waste.

If the energy amounts are converted into electricity with cogeneration plants, this results in an annual electricity output of 57,200 MWh. 

The investment for the first plant in Germany amounts to approximately 14 million Euros.
