Synthetic, clean hydrocarbon
Plaxx® is a low sulphur crude oil equivalent, well suited to a range of industrial applications. It consists of four cuts: naphtha substitute/light oil (Plaxx-8), low sulphur heavy fuel oil (Plaxx-16), base oil (Plaxx-30), and wax (Plaxx-50).
Recycling Technologies’ eco-innovative products will contribute to the growth of a circular economy by partly displacing the use of virgin crude oil with Plaxx in the increasing demand for plastic products. As a consequence, all four Plaxx products come with reduced carbon footprint when compared to their fossil-fuel based equivalent.
Plaxx characteristics by industry
Plastics industry (naphtha substitute / light oil)
We are engaged with plastics manufacturers and petrochemical companies 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.
Plaxx-16 (Marine & Industrial LSHFO)
Lubricant industry (base oil)
We are offering Plaxx-30 as a base oil equivalent to be used in the production of industrial lubricant oils.
Wax and coatings industry (wax)
We are developing Plaxx-50 as a commodity paraffinic wax.
Plaxx-50 (Wax & Coatings)
As a synthetic, ultra-low sulphur hydrocarbon, Plaxx is being tailored to meet industrial HFO BS:2869 and ISO:8217 standards.
