Plants & Projects

In line with Quantafuel’s vision to become the world’s most significant contributor to the sustainable handling of plastic waste, we are now ready to roll out technology and plants throughout Europe.



 

With our plant in Esbjerg, Quantafuel intend to contribute to resolving a major global waste problem by transforming plastic waste into chemically-recycled products that can be utilised by the chemical industry to manufacture new plastic products.
 

Skive

Quantafuel’s first commercial production facility is located in Skive, Denmark. The chemical recycling plant is the first of its kind in the world and is a major milestone for the company.

The factory is presently scaled to process 20,000 tonnes of mixed plastic waste per year. The plastic feedstock, primarily household waste from Denmark & Norway, would otherwise be incinerated or disposed of in landfills.

All liquid products manufactured in Skive will be shipped to BASF, who will upgrade the recycled material to new plastic products and chemicals, creating a circular economy for plastic waste.

Plant Skive

Quantafuel’s Plastic-to-liquid (Ptl) plant in Skive is the first of its kind in the world.

Plans for future projects and plants

In 2020 we began the production of chemically-recycled plastic waste in our first commercial plant in Skive, Denmark. Building further on the experience gained in Skive, scaling our organisation and following the ambitions targets on recycling in the EU, Quantafuel is ready to take on Europe.

We are also developing new technologies to further expand the waste resources going into our plants and conduct projects together with leading companies with strong ambitions to increase the recycled content in their consumer products.

 

Project - Esbjerg 

Quantafuel works to promote sustainable development in all our projects. With our plant in Esbjerg, Quantafuel intends to contribute to resolving a major global waste problem by transforming plastic waste into chemically-recycled products that can be used by the chemical industry to manufacture new plastic products.

Project - Esbjerg

Quantafuel works to promote sustainable development in all our projects.

Chemical material recycling makes waste plastics part of the circular economy, enabling everyday household waste to be used again in new products, eliminating the need for new CO2-intensive virgin oil to be used.

The project is based on technology that has been tested at Quantafuel’s plant in Skive and will have significantly higher capacity, diverting even more plastic waste from incineration, and upcycling to new recycled products. The plant will also be capable of accepting a broader range of unsorted plastics and sorting them into specific fractions for optimal use in the chemical process.

Since August 2020 the project-team in Quantafuel has worked with Rambøll on a FEED study and will proceed to the next phase in Q1 2021, for scheduled start of construction in the summer of 2021.

Research and Development center 

Quantafuel Sweden AB is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quantafuel ASA created in connection with the transfer of certain IP rights and activities from long-term Quantafuel partner Hulteberg Chemistry and Engineering AB.

The company drives strategic initiatives to improve Quantafuel’s chemical recycling technology portfolio including the management of laboratory pilots and analytical facilities.

Developing and improving technologies has always been part of the core values of Quantafuel. We strongly believe that exploring ideas through innovative projects, trials and testing will drive solutions for a more sustainable waste and energy market. Our technical staff and research experts are dedicated to exploring new solutions to increase the sustainable use of waste resources through ground-breaking chemical and technical solutions for a better tomorrow. 

Kristiansund

Quantafuel’s pilot plant in Kristiansund is part of the next generation PtL plants. The plant is co-located with Replast’s facilities for mechanical recycling of plastic waste. Results from the pilot plant will be used as the basis for the full-scale plant to be built on the same premises. Setting up the pilot plant at Replast’s facilities ensures unequivocal quality of plastic feedstock, utilising Replast’s facilities and expertise in plastic waste handling.

These synergies will be further developed for the future plant, providing a substantial increase in recycled fractions compared to stand-alone plants for both mechanical and chemical recycling.

The chemically-recycled products produced in Kristiansund will be used by BASF to produce new plastic products.

Solution Quantafuel

Our Solution

Our solution is to place a value on plastic waste. We must start treating used plastic as a valuable resource, establishing a model for waste plastic collection and upgrading it to recycled products. The entire value chain needs to be circular.
