Handerek Technologies

COMPANY

Handerek Technologies (Warsaw) – another science-driven enterprise set on an ambitious task to fuel circular economy by recycling waste plastic into fuel (!) this patented process accepts low value, contaminated, mixed plastic from post-consumer, industrial and agricultural waste streams; once the plastics are processed through the modular reactor system, the end product is fuel fulfilling EU norms for Diesel EN590 and Gasoline EN228 components; it also converts the cost of landfilling or incinerating waste plastic into highly profitable revenue source and concurrently lowers carbon footprint. When fully operational it will make 1L fuel out of 1kg plastic – just imagine the scale.
