Nexus Technology:

Take a brief look at our efficient process of converting plastic through pyrolysis.

An Overview of Our Process

Unmatched Energy Efficiency

Energy returned on energy invested (EROEI) is the ratio of the amount of usable energy acquired to the amount of energy expended during any conversion process. Nexus Fuels prides itself on an achieved ratio far exceeding others in its newest and largest running plant. Through years of research and hard work, Nexus Fuels has developed  superior Nexus technology and process to provide the best production yield in plastic to fuel pyrolysis.

Of the +40 million tons of plastic generated in 2013, only 7 percent of the total plastic waste was recovered for recycling and most of that was PET (#1) and HDPE (#2). A vast majority of the discarded #4‐7 plastics were placed into landfills.

A large amount of waste plastic from commercial, industrial, and municipal sources enters landfills or the worlds waterways each year. Unlike paper, cardboard, and other biodegradable organic materials entering the landfill, plastic does not significantly break down over time. While organic waste can decompose to produce methane and carbon dioxide gas that can occasionally be harvested and used as an energy source, waste plastic currently carries no such benefit.

  • Low‐density polyethylene (LDPE) used in plastic bags, cling film, and flexible containers.
  • High‐density polyethylene (HDPE) used in piping, shampoo and detergent bottles, oil bottles, and milk crates.
  • Polypropylene (PP) used in food containers, battery cases, bottle crates, automotive parts, and fibers.
  • Polystyrene (PS) used in dairy product containers, tape cassettes, cups and plates.
