One of the most significant differences between our process and any other waste into fuel process we've seen on the market to date is the quality of our fuel.
At Plastic2Oil, 'quality' means 'ultra-clean, ultra-low sulphur' fuel products which do not require further refining.

The Importance of Ultra-Low Sulphur Diesel Fuel
Ultra-low sulphur diesel is a type of diesel fuel that contains 15 parts per million (ppm) or lower sulphur content. This diesel fuel is often referred to as “clean diesel” because the sulphur content has been reduced by more than 95%. In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated that 100% of highway diesel imported into or refined in the U.S. must meet this low sulphur standard. The reduction of sulphur in diesel enables and preserves the operation of advanced emissions control systems on light- and heavy-duty diesel vehicles.
The use of advanced emissions controls leads to an environmental benefit where oxides of nitrogen and other pollutant particulates are drastically diminished. Currently, ultra-low sulphur diesel is primarily produced by petroleum. P2O's ultra-low sulphur diesel offers a unique alternative that is high quality, ultra-clean fuel derived from a plastic waste feedstock.
The fuel quality from our P2O process is notably superior to the typical boiler fuel purchased by large industrial users, as shown below.
