We have unpacked the container of the various parts of the pyrolysis system. The heaviest is the retort, pictured, that is used to thermally break the tyres down into gas, oils and char and steel. The rest of the plant processes the oils into a diesel-like and petrol-like fuel.
With Caritas NZ Nufuels is funded by MFAT to undertake a pilot project to develop a small batch pyrolysis systems for the processing of waste plastics (and possibly waste tyres) into solid, liquid and gas fuels. Leigh Ramsey and Gael Ferguson from Nufuels Ltd, assisted by Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand Project Manager, Marion Ferguson, visited the Solomon Islands between 14 and 28 May. The team took a demonstration unit (a test rig) to show interested people and groups the process and first stage product (crude oil and gas) and various uses.
