Besides a pioneering and dedicated management team, a highly experienced technical team, and a large network of industry experts and professionals, Klean Industries boasts a portfolio of “clean” technologies that have multiple feedstock capabilities. Some of these technologies have been optimized to process the niche waste streams that are a core focus of Klean’s technology applications, such as scrap tires, mixed plastics, and municipal solid wastes. There are multiple reference facilities dedicated to these waste streams, which are some of the largest and longest-running plants in the world.
By using only technologies that have a long history of safe and efficient operations, Klean Industries can draw on decades of engineering excellence to ensure that each new project can be delivered with confidence that only comes from such experience. These fully mature technologies have been continually refined, upgraded, and improved since their first conception in the 1960s, they are now fully optimized and extremely efficient, using only a fraction of the recovered energy for process heat to power themselves.
As an example, some of our unique operational features that are a part of our proprietary designs save significant operating costs such as our vertical kiln technology, which is a continuous tyre carbonization process is designed to take whole tyres into the reactor thus avoiding pre-treatment systems such as shredding and chipping. This also allows for the steel to be extracted whole rather than shredded, which reduces processing costs and improves the value of the steel recovered. Another example, with the plastic depolymerization technology, this process has been perfected so that large volumes of PET and PVC can be included within the mixed plastic waste, without a detrimental effect on the reactor itself or the end products.
Both our access to and our knowledge of different feedstocks is another key strength of Klean Industries. We continuously develop our network of feedstock suppliers and have access to large volumes of feedstock supplies around the globe from various sources. Controlling feedstock at the source allows projects to secure long-term supplies for their operations to run at full capacity. Additionally, by producing the highest quality end products that fit today’s supply chain, we help projects attract significant demand for cost-effective, green, and low-carbon footprint commodities. This has meant Klean Industries has been able to forward sell all of each plant’s production in advance, reinforcing the Klean business model.
