How it works

Production of chemically recycled petrochemical fractions – easy to accomplish!

The Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor (Cat-HTR) technology utilises water at, or near, supercritical temperatures and pressures as a cost-effective catalyst. The water breaks down the polymeric structure of the feedstock and hydrogen is harvested from the water for use in the creation of new hydrocarbon molecules.

The Cat-HTR technology has been developed by Australian company, Licella Pty (Licella), in partnership with the University of Sydney. The technology has already been proven for the production of oils, using both non-food biomass and plastic feedstocks, at the continuous-flow pilot plant situated in Sydney, Australia.
