Synthetic, clean hydrocarbon
Plaxx® is a low sulphur hydrocarbon product with a very high calorific value, well suited to a range of industrial applications. It consists of three fractions: naphtha/light oil (Plaxx-8), low sulphur heavy fuel oil (Plaxx-16), and wax (Plaxx-40).
Recycling Technologies’ eco-innovative product will contribute to the growth of a circular economy by retaining oil-based materials in use through facilitating the repeated remaking of plastics from a End-of-Life Plastic source, turning a waste into a resource. The carbon footprint of fossil-based plastics will be reduced through their repeated reuse, as well as by their increased efficiency as a fuel.
Plaxx characteristics by industry
Plastics industry (naphtha / light oils)
We are engaged with plastics manufacturers to trial Plaxx-8 as a feedstock for virgin plastic production, propelling the circular economy. Petrochemical facilities are looking to increase the recycled content of their end products.
Plaxx-8 (Naphta / Light Oils)
Marine low sulphur heavy fuel oil
We are providing Plaxx-16 as a clean fuel compliant with the MARPOL Regulation for marine operators and Medium Combustion Plant directives. Plaxx-16 is a low sulphur higher viscosity and competitive substitute to Marine Gas Oils.
Industrial low sulphur heavy fuel oil
We are offering Plaxx-16 as an alternative to low sulphur fossil HFO for industrial heat and energy users wishing to improve both their cost and carbon positions.
Plaxx-16 (Marine & Industrial LSHFO)
Wax and coatings industry (wax)
We are developing Plaxx-40 as a commodity paraffinic wax.
Plaxx-40 (Wax & Coatings)
As a synthetic, ultra-low sulphur hydrocarbon, Plaxx is being tailored to meet industrial HFO BS:2869 and ISO:8217 standards.
