Gen2PTD’s state of the art process, as licensed by Gen Tech PTD, converts waste plastics of all categories, except PVC, into high density, easily transportable, completely industry compliant energy sources. The PTD process results in two basic products:
- Gen2 Sustainable Diesel ™, An ASTM D-975 No. 2 ULSD Diesel which is CA CARB compliant diesel
- Ultra-Low Sulfur Heavy Fuel Oil, or Marine Diesel
Gen2PTD’s process is highly efficient and yields a massive Net Positive Energy Footprint in excess of thirty-to-one (each kilowatt of energy used in processing results in over thirty kilowatts of fuel energy). Additionally, this low carbon process reduces CO2 emissions by 13,688 metric tons per unit per year, and exceeds compliance with recycle goals mandated by many state and federal agencies.
Gen Tech PTD has developed a state of the art plastic to diesel conversion technology through a joint venture with Supertherm, Ltd. This technology converts any type of recyclable and non-recyclable plastic material, except PVC, into either No. 2, or No. 1, diesel fuels meeting full ASTM D975 Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD) and CA CARB specifications, Gen2 Sustainable Diesel™. Gen2 holds an exclusive license to use the technology and equipment for the U.S.
Each system converts approximately 675 kg/hr. (~1,100,000 pounds of plastics per month) into immediately useable fuels. A production facility with two systems processing waste plastics results in monthly production of approximately 176,140 gallons of ASTM D975 Grade No. 2 Diesel and 41,220 gallons of Low Sulfur, marine quality sulfur compliant, Heavy Fuel Oil.
Gen2PTD’s clean and green technology boasts a closed loop system with near zero emissions creating a new sustainable energy source with a positive energy balance and a low carbon footprint. The modular and scalable system has significant organic growth potential and helps solve major compliance issues for municipalities while reducing landfill growth. Additionally, it creates permanent skilled and unskilled jobs within the community so each project adds to the tax base at city, county, state, and federal levels.
Gen2 PTD’s inventory and tracking system will provide proof that its plastics suppliers have a net zero position in terms of:
1) emissions associated with waste disposal
2) liability associated with storing or landfilling plastic waste
3) compliance with state mandated 75% recycle threshold
