RGH Systems Plans to Transform Mountains of Waste Plastic into Low Carbon Intensity Fuel in Philippines
The era of single-use plastic waste not being recycled is coming to an end in the Philippines
MAKATI CITY, PHILIPPINES – REI Global Inc. (“REI”) and Greenergie Corporation (“Greenergie”) are pleased to announce they have entered into a joint venture agreement forming RGH System Inc (“RGH”), to build, construct, and operate an advanced 30 tonnes per day Plastic-to-Diesel resource facility in Bulacan, Philippines expecting to break ground January 2023.
RGH aims to transform mountains of waste plastics, diverting plastics from landfills and oceans by converting plastic into synthetic diesel fuel, which can be used in diesel engines, trucks, buses, trains, boats, heavy equipment, boilers, and generators. Its low carbon intensity in terms of a recovered resource provided a game-changing opportunity for the Philippines that repurposes single-use plastics creating economic development while preventing oil-based waste from littering our environment. The RGH facility will be best-in-class, applying advanced operating efficiencies and high-performance plastic sorting machinery within the Bulacan facility. Contracts are now in place for the project, which successfully satisfies the Philippines National Standard requirements and the Department of Environment and National resources climate goals.
“RGH Systems is building a 13,000 sq meter resource recovery facility on 20,000 sq meters of land provided by Greenergie. RGH has strategically selected Klean Industries Inc (“Klean”), a global leader in advanced thermal recycling technologies, to develop the most advanced full-scale resource recovery facility in Bulacan. RGH Systems is committed to global sustainability and participation within the circular economy with plans to scale the plastic processing volumes to over 100 metric tonnes per day by 2024. Once this facility is operational, it will run 24/7 for 330 days per year with an output of approximately nine million liters of diesel fuel”, commented Rene Ferrer, President of REI Global.
“We are pleased to partner with REI Global and look forward to beginning construction in a few months. Once our facility is built, it will be one of the most modern facilities in the Philippines. I am excited about all that we have accomplished so far, and I look forward to helping end plastic waste in the Philippines. What’s important to me and for future generations is that plastic waste is 100% recycled by converting it into valuable resources at our facility where it will no longer end up in landfills, the oceans, or on our beaches here. Furthermore, the plant will create much-needed cleantech jobs and provide the Philippines with much-needed green diesel for use within the country. I am very proud of what our plant is going to do for the country”, says Elpidio Castillo, owner of Greenergie.
The technology for this state-of-the-art facility is being provided by Klean Industries of Vancouver, Canada. Klean Industries is an international company focused on applying proven, patented, technologies that provide industrial symbiosis between energy, waste, and resources in a commercially viable and environmentally responsible manner. Their primary focus is the recovery of resources found in hydrocarbon-based waste streams such as end-of-life tires, waste plastics, and municipal solid waste. Klean Industries is leading the way with proven turn-key solutions, customized for RGH.
“We are excited by the opportunity and feel the Bulacan facility is going to set a high standard in the Philippines. Our team looks forward to the development of the RGH project. The equipment we will be installing will be the most modern technology anywhere in the Philippines, and we look forward to working with RGH to make this happen.”, explained Jesse Klinkhamer, CEO of Klean Industries Inc.
