First of all, confirm whether the supply of raw materials is sufficient

Plastics are everywhere, but not all plastics can be converted into diesel. The types of plastics that can be refined into diesel are limited, such as, pp, pe, ps, abs, etc. So it is best to first confirm how much waste plastic you can collect every day.

Second, confirm the suitable land

In general, converting plastic to diesel requires two sets of equipment: pyrolysis machine and distillation plant. Firstly, you need process the plastic to pyrolysis oil by the pyrolysis machine and then extract diesel from pyrolysis oil by the distillation plant. The two sets of equipment occupy an area of about 300~ 600 square meters. If you don’t have suitable land, please contact the relevant department to ask if you can apply for approval of suitable land.

Third, investigate the diesel sales market

The produced diesel from plastic can be used in the diesel burner, generator, boiler, truck, tractor and so on. You can try to find suitable diesel buyers based on these uses and talk about long-term cooperation with them in supplying diesel. If you cannot find some good diesel buyers, then you can also sell diesel directly to gas stations or transportation fleets.

Forth, choose the suitable pyrolysis machine and distillation plant

If the above materials, sites and product sales channels are all ok, the next step is to purchase equipment.
