Plastic to Oil Machine

Plastic to oil machine presents a promising solution for addressing the global issue of plastic waste. It utilizes pyrolysis technology to convert waste plastic into valuable pyrolysis fuel oil. This approach mitigates environmental harm caused by plastic waste but also adds economic value to recycling efforts. If you are seeking solutions for plastic management, perhaps you can consider this approach.

Turn Plastic to Oil

Plastic to Oil – Solves Plastic Industry Pain Points

Addressing Massive Plastic Waste

Annually, the world produces approximately 400 million metric tons of plastic waste. On average, only 9% of plastic waste is recycled. A mass of plastic waste still exists in the environment. Plastic into oil machine (also called plastic to fuel machine) can conscientiously reduce plastic waste.

Extend the Lifespan of Plastic

A significant portion of plastic is used to make disposable items or other short-lived products. Converting waste plastic into pyrolysis oil with wide uses will extend the lifespan of plastic resources, achieving sustainable utilization.

Reduce Incineration Pollution and Wastages

Instead of incineration, plastic to oil solution avoids air pollution, reduce the consuption of petroleum to make plastic and achieves more complete recycling of plastic resources. It is a sustainable and clean recycling method.

Reduce Landfill and Ocean Pollution

Plastic to oil solution can process a large quantity plastic at eco-friendly way. It protects land and ocean from the white pollution from plastic. This solution also does not need to wait for slow natural degradation, saving land sources.

How to Turn Plastic to Oil?

01Preheating and Feeding

Initiate combustion burner to heat the reactor via hot air. As temperature reaches 300-350℃, feed waste plastics into pyrolysis reactor. The options we offer include belt conveyor, hydraulic feeder, and auto screw feeder.

02Plastic Catalysis Pyrolysis

Polymer in waste plastic decomposes due to heat. At 180℃, oil gas begins to appear. At 280-400°C, large amounts of oil gas are produced. During the plastic to oil process, the oil gas enters the catalytic tower and reacts with the catalyst. This improves pyrolysis efficiency. The heavy particles of the oil gas (mainly oil dregs) drop into the sludge tank, while the light particles rise and enter the condenser.

03Oil Gas Condensation and Syngas recycling

Partial oil gas is liquefied into oil, remaining in the oil tank.

The non-condensable oil gas goes through hydro-seal for purification, and then returns to the combustion chamber as fuel. Usually, the burner for preheating can be shut down after 2 hours once the system starts to generate oil.


Taking BLL-30 plastic oil machine as an example, the smoke is discharged safely after dust removal, water spraying, activated carbon adsorption, and ceramic ring absorption. It can meet the EU environmental emission standards.

05Solid Residues Collection

The solid residues will be discharged by labor (skid-mounted type) or water-cooling discharger.

Types of Plastic That Can Be Converted to Oil

The type of plastic affects the oil yield. Indeed, not all waste plastics are suitable for pyrolysis. Here are some suggestions for your reference.

PE/PP/PS/ABS/Others – Safe Choice

Types of Plastic Coming from
LDPE-4 Low-Density Polyethylene Cling films, freshness protection bags, etc.
HDPE-2 High-Density Polyethylene Plastic pallets, trash cans, etc.
PP-5 Polypropylene Microwave lunch box, fresh-keeping box, etc.
PS-6 Polystyrene Fast food box, bowl of instant noodles box, etc.
Others-7-1 Other Plastics without chlorine and oxygen Various sources

PET/PVC/Others- Avoidance

PET: PET pyrolysis produces oxygen, which results in the combustion of plastics, consequently leading to low oil yield. The production of oxygen poses a potential safety hazard.
PVC: PVC pyrolysis produces highly corrosive HCI (hydrogen chloride), harmful to the waste plastic to oil machine. The resulting pyrolysis oil contains chlorine elements, and its combustion can release dioxins (carcinogenic substances).

Types of Plastic Coming from
PET-1 Polyethylene Terephthalate Mineral water bottle, carbonated beverage bottle, etc.
PVC-3 Polyvinyl Chloride Raincoat, building materials, etc.
Others-7-2 Other plastics with chlorine and oxygen Various sources

Application Prospect of Plastic Oil – Towards Circle Economy

Act As Alternative Fuel

Pyrolysis oil, a dark, viscous liquid containing various hydrocarbons is the primary product of plastic into oil machine. It has a high calorific value ranging from 38 to 45 MJ/kg, so it can serve as a viable alternative to traditional petroleum products such as diesel or gasoline.

  • Direct burned as fuel: Typically the plastic pyrolysis oil is sold to energy-intensive industries such as glass factories, steel mills, power plants, and ceramics factories.
  • Refined for higher-grade fuel: The plastic pyrolysis oil is sold to refineries for the production of commercial diesel.
  • Distilled for power generation: After distillation processing, the heavy oil components are utilized in heavy oil generator sets for power generation.

Form Closed-loop Recycling in Plastic Manufacturing

Plastics are derived from petroleum, so plastic pyrolysis oil is theoretically possible to be used to produce new plastics. This can break the linear economic model of “Take→Make→Use→Dispose” and achieve a circular loop of “Manufacture-Consume-Recycle”.

Research has shown that pyrolysis oil can indeed be a raw material for new plastics. It can serve as a raw material for manufacturing ethylene and propylene ( core raw material of plastic production). This offers hope for realizing a circular economy for plastics, attracting in-depth studies from relevant companies.

Circle Economy of Plastic to Oil Pyrolysis Recycling

Our Role in Sustainable Cycle

Beston Group is committed to the development of the Circular Economy.  Our primary focus is to prevent waste plastic from reaching a landfill or incinerator by developing a kind of chemical recycling way, that is plastic to oil plant. Ultimately, we contribute to propelling the plastic industry towards a circular economy in the following ways:

Upstream – Petrochemical Industry

  • Pyrolysis oil, as an energy source, reduces the demand for crude oil and petrochemical products, saving oil resources.
  • Plastic pyrolysis as raw materials for new plastics reduces reliance on petroleum extraction and promotes more sustainable resource circulation.

Midstream – Plastic Processing Industry

  • Plastic manufacturing is an energy-intensive industry. Pyrolysis oil can provide a new energy source for it.
  • Pyrolysis oil is expected to enrich the raw material sources for plastic production, reducing dependence on crude oil and making production more flexible and sustainable.

Downstream – Waste Plastic Management Industry

  • Plastic recycling factories can expand revenue streams and broaden the industry chain through the use of plastic to oil machine.
  • Pyrolysis technology can efficiently address large quantities of waste plastics with minimal environmental impact. It offers innovative eco-friendly solutions for the processing and recycling of discarded plastics.

Catalytic Pyrolysis – 100% Solves Wax Oil Clogging

Plastic to oil machine (also called plastic pyrolysis plant) of Beston uses catalytic pyrolysis patent technology. Compared with common pyrolysis, this technology resolves the wax accumulation problem during plastic pyrolysis, thereby improving the quality of plastic pyrolysis oil. It also prevents safety hazards by reducing the risk of pressure build-up resulting from wax blockages in pipelines. Moreover, it reduces maintenance downtime and cleaning frequency, thereby lowering operational costs. Here, we would like to share details of the catalytic technology.


The molecular sieve catalyst primarily contains elements such as Ai, Si, Mg, etc., and appears as spherical particles with a size of 6-13mm. It accelerates the conversion process of plastic to oil, minimizing the deposition and liquefaction of plastic waxes as much as possible.

Catalytic System

Dual-catalyst tower system and single-catalyst tower system are available to choose from. You only need to do so:
1. Add catalyst to catalyst tower.
2. Check whether Bor-Mag rings need to be replaced every 2-3 furnaces.
3. Examine whether to release contaminated catalyst and replenish with the new every 10 furnaces.
