Energy Recovery

Energy recovery refers to operations that aim to use the released energy obtained during the combustion of plastics waste. This energy can be used to produce heat and/or electricity for domestic or industrial use. This process should be applied to the plastic waste of bad quality which is not beneficial from an environmental and economic aspect.
