JBI Starts up Second Plastics-to-Fuel System

Headline News

Canadian company says both of its lines are permitted to operate at 4,000 pounds per hour.


JBI Inc. says it has successfully brought its second Plastic2Oil (P2O) processor online at its Niagara Falls, N.Y., facility.

The design of the company’s Processor No. 2 is based on data retrieved while working with the original P2O processor, which since June 2011 has undergone a number of substantial upgrades, according to the Toronto-based company. JBI also says the second line’s enhancements include “a replicable and deployable modular design that leverages economies of scale [and provides] the ability to cater to specific fuel needs of customers and a reduction of stack emissions.”

Both processors are permitted to operate at 4,000 pounds per hour, the company says in a news release. Currently, the two processors are currently operating at 2,000 pounds per hour. The company expects to operate both processors at 4,000 pounds per hour once the company receives approval on its amended Solid Waste Permit from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).

JBI says doubling the plastic feedstock throughput from 2,000 pounds per hour per processor to 4,000 should double the amount of fuel output each P2O processor can produce.

“Bringing Processor No. 2 online represents a significant achievement as well as a milestone for our company,” says John Bordynuik, JBI Inc. CEO and president. “We believe this sets us apart from other plastic into fuel conversion technologies. JBI Inc. is the first company to successfully move from a pilot plant to a multiple processor, full production plant within the industry.”

JBI Inc. says it “transforms unsorted, unwashed waste plastic into clean, ultra-low sulfur fuel without the need for refinement. “
