We develop technological solutions that turn waste into a natural resource. A focus is on wastes that are currently being landfilled or incinerated. Over these years, we have been zooming in on streams that contain both organic and non-organic matter. Examples are laminate materials (drink cartons, tooth paste tubes, pouches etc.) and mixed plastics, but also biomass streams such as sludges, rice husk and other similar streams. With our technology we are able to separate the organic from the inorganic matter, so recovering useable resources, typically oil and metals or minerals.
After our successful implementation of the world’s first installation for the recycling of drink carton laminates, Alucha is now fully focused on developing a solution for paper sludge. For client Essity we are leveraging our extensive experience with pyrolysis to develop a solution that turns paper sludge into re-usable oils and minerals. No more waste, but re-use of these precious resources. The solution will be implemented in compact, small footprint, modules that enable local conversion of the paper sludge, so also avoiding substantial truck movements, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
