BBL Energy is planning to develop its first North American facility in Johnstown, located in the Township of Edwardsburgh/Cardinal, Ontario, that will convert plastics into light diesel oil and natural gas, as reported by the Recorder & Times on 18th October 2018.
BBL uses a unique pyrolysis technology, that has been developed by Polyfuel, to recycle “dirty” plastic waste as water bottles, food containers, plastic bags, hospital waste, straws and industrial drums. The technology also can transform tyres and used oil into energy.
The company is closing a deal to buy the Prescott Machine and Welding property at Johnstown, which it plans to renovate. The new facility is expected to be operational by the end of March 2019.
The plant will operate two machines to convert plastics into energy, taking in plastics from around the region. Each machine can convert 3,800 tonnes of plastic into energy a year. One tonne of plastic could be transformed into 1,000 litres of light diesel.
The plant will also serve as a showroom for the machines that BBL hopes to sell to municipalities and private waste companies in North America.
