JBII to be a Tour Destination hosted by Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) on Thursday, May 26, 2011.
Tour of Recycling & Waste Recovery Facilities, Niagara Falls Region:
Visit # 3: A pilot plant showcasing an emerging technology that converts residual plastic waste into fuels.
JBI, Inc. (Plastics to Oil plant), 20 Iroquois Street, Niagara Falls, NY, USA
JBI converts plastics-to-fuel and natural gas, ensuring that the embedded energy in residual plastics is managed and conserved
as an important and useful resource, rather than treated as a disposable waste. JBI’s fully automated process vaporizes plastics and
cracks their hydrocarbon chains using a proprietary catalyst. The New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC)
has recently granted the plant a consent order to operate commercially.
