Plastic pyrolysis to influence Indian waste sector

The method of plastic pyrolysis as an energy source is gaining more and more recognition in India, as reported by Financial Express. As it offers an alternative to combustion and biogas plants, the new technology relies on breaking down plastic into smaller molecules of oil and gas in order to generate energy. With the amounts of municipal waste increasing in India, the government is pressuring its state governments to build more treatment plants and to build them quickly. In connection with that, the government has declared the practice of plastic pyrolysis to be in accordance with India’s CSR standards. This has triggered plans for constructing pyrolysis plants and some tenders for constructing such plants have already been started.
