Plastics to Power™, Conversion of Marine Debris and Non-Recyclable Waste to Power and Clean Water, the PtP Energy System
PtPtm Energy Systems LLC is a Plastics to Power™ Conversion Technology, a barge-mounted or shore-based system to provide wide regional elimination of marine debris, coastal plastic thrash, biomass, municipal non-recyclables, and semi-hazardous waste while producing up to 5 MW power, clean desalinated water, and industrial process heat to shore-side communities. An economic model based on FMCG life cycle costing can readily fund this system, which can be deployed in many locations, especially in the Asian or Oceanic archipelagos. The core advantages to isolated communities or local waste hot-spots are the elimination of plastic waste with a primary mission of minimal emissions, or waste byproducts. This is accomplished by high residence time combustion, destruction of POPs, and bricking of any residue, which is not attainable with incineration methods. The barge or land-based system, combined with the digitized collection, can service a wide geographic or community area.
