The project is based on the installation of a new Cat-HTR™ (Hydrothermal Upgrading Facility) Plant that will be designed to convert up to 30,000 tonnes per annum of ‘End of Life’ plastic to hydrocarbon products initially targeting plastics rich in polyethylene and polypropylene with the aim of converting them into three key distinct intermediate distillate products:
