Yet, the world still faces many challenges:
Only a small portion of the plastic
waste can be handled, with most still
being burned or landfilled.
Oil prices go up as the
demand for this limited natural
New and changing regulations
for industries make it difficult
to cope with the situation.
Brand Owners face
a rising need for cleaner,
Consumers are paying
higher and higher taxes for
plastic waste handling.
Meet Clariter’s revolutionary chemical upcycling technology that ends the life of plastic.
Our unique process transforms more than 60% of all plastic waste types into 3 high-value industrial products: solvents, oils, and waxes. These go on to become more than 1000 everyday end products. Now, rather than using recycled plastic, we can all enjoy upcycled plastic-free products.
Together, we’re pro-actively cleaning the planet of plastic waste, creating environment-friendly, fossil-free products, and empowering industry to meet sustainability regulations, reduce carbon footprint, create jobs, and build stronger communities.
The seeds of Clariter’s technology were conceived by Professor Andrzej Bylicki, a leading role-player in European science. Professor was an integral part of Clariter’s team developing our proprietary technology until he died at the age of 94, in 2010.
We have since continued to perfect the process and our proven technology is already in operation at our 300m² Research & Development Plant in Gliwice, Poland and our 15,000m² Industrial-scale Demonstration Plant in East London, South Africa.
Rollout plans for several new Clariter facilities across Europe and the Middle East have begun. Together these will transform 300,000 tons of plastic waste and produce over 250,000 tons of pure, clean, high-value products every year.
CLARITER’S RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
PLANT IN POLAND
The transformation takes place through our unique 3-stage
upcycling process that ensures the highest quality outcome
and dynamic control over every parameter:
Plastic waste is converted into
a wide range of hydrocarbons.
Impurities are removed, and naphthenic
and paraffinic hydrocarbons are formed.
Fractions are distilled into our 3 product
families and are then blended into diverse
applications by our partners.
TYPES OF PLASTIC WE UPCYCLE
The raw materials used in our chemical upcycling technology are pure plastic waste and are not mixed with spent oils, biomass, or tyre scraps. Unlike other technologies, we do not require colours to be separated and we can accept more than 60% of plastic waste streams like Polyethylene and Polypropylene, and even the hardest to recycle, such as limited amounts of Polystyrene.
WE ARE A STEP AHEAD
We are not plastic to plastic. We are not plastic to fuels.
We are not plastic to energy. We are plastic to products.
Our technology provides the solution for
the challenges being faced by the world today.
In Europe, and globally, governments are introducing new
waste management policies which are calling for preparation
to re-use and recycle as the only preferred solutions.
Clariter is a step ahead, pioneering an upcycle technology
– a climate-neutral and resource-efficient solution,
leading a Circular Economy of the future.
