Synthetic, clean hydrocarbon

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.


  • Feedstock for petrochemical plants
Plaxx for the plastics industry

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.


  • Fuel for marine engines

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.


  • Large-scale heat and energy generation
PLaxx for marine and industry

Plaxx-16 (Marine & Industrial LSHFO)

Wax and coatings industry (wax)

We are developing Plaxx-40 as a commodity paraffinic wax.


  • Feedstock for coatings and environmental protection
  • Feedstock for injection moulding and mould release
  • Bitumen modifiers
  • Candles
Plax for wax and coatings

Plaxx-40 (Wax & Coatings)

Plaxx certification

As a synthetic, ultra-low sulphur hydrocarbon, Plaxx is being tailored to meet industrial HFO BS:2869 and ISO:8217 standards.
