City Oil Field will participate in the 42nd International Exhibition on Environmental Technology & Green Energy (ENVEX 2020) to be held at COEX from June 17 (Wed) to 19 (Fri) to introduce waste plastic decomposition treatment and energy recovery technology.
Since its foundation in 1980 (formerly
known as the National Institute of Homeland Life Sciences'), it has been
continuously researching the fields of waste treatment, odor removal, and green
algae removal by using ceramic emission waves for over 30 years. After many
years of research, it has developed a new functional high-tech ceramic ball
that generates ultraviolet rays at 120~270℃ and process technology for
eco-friendly decomposing low-grade waste plastics, and technology for refining
clean liquid fuel generated as a by-product into high-quality fuel that can be
used in the field, and they will soon be commercialized.
An official said, "We are a company
that has been researching air, water, and waste treatment fields for many
years, and we developed this technology to overcome the limitations of
conventional waste plastics processing technology. The waste plastic decomposition
treatment solution is largely composed of a two-step process."
The plant consists of a first decomposition
treatment facility and a second refinement step facility, and various types of
UV-emitting ceramic balls made from natural minerals are optimized for each
stage's purpose. As the temperature rises, UV waves are emitted from the
ceramic balls located inside the completely sealed metal tank to decompose by
cracking the carbon-carbon bonds of the waste plastic, and the decomposed
material is recovered as high-quality light oil through a secondary refinement
Also, since the decomposed residue is
regenerated as a high-calorie, high-carbon solid fuel through a series of
processes including a separation process from foreign substances, the waste
discarded after the waste plastic treatment is 10% which is very low, and the
energy recovery rate is very high.
On the overseas business direction, the
official said, "The waste plastic recycling industry is closely related to
the policies of each country, so we are contacting foreign personnel from the
Ministry of Environment of each country and environmental personnel of the
United Nations (UN, EU, etc.) to enter the global market. "We have contacted
the officials from the UK, EU Gateway, and UN OSD and already received positive
responses on our technology, and achieved visible results such as the
establishment of joint ventures with large Chinese companies."
He then continued, "We want to
establish a network with buyers or partners in charge of environmental
ministries of countries with serious waste plastics problems or insufficient
waste plastics processing technology, to enter a broader market without
limiting itself to countries and institutions."
Marking its 42nd year this year, ENVEX 2020
has been serving as the business venue every year to help domestic
environmental companies develop domestic and overseas markets. It has attracted
1,000 overseas buyers to provide business matching with the exhibitors in
