In may Ramsey of Seydametov received a Russian patent for invention and a confirmation from Switzerland that his copyright under international PCT was in 159 countries. This was preceded by 11 years of hard work, experience and mistakes, which ultimately brought the desired result. A creation of the reverse of cracking, the inventor of Simferopol began in 2009.
– we had a joint Ukrainian-American enterprise completely different direction. We have developed reactors for cultivation of microalgae and with this task successfully coped, told Ramsey. – Once one American, our partner, turning the handle of a plastic bag: theoretically it is possible to obtain 50 percent of a liquid substance, like gasoline. It clicked, and from that moment we began to tackle the problem of recycling of polymer wastes.
they Began to gather information and study the subject. The first attempt was unsuccessful. Crimeans decided to find a ready-made equipment that could alter for such purposes. Equipment, as they thought, they found, except that the output is useful fractions make a “compote” of a mixture of dozens of acids. So entrepreneurs understand that they need to go completely the other way, and themselves create everything you need for plastics processing. Attracted professional chemists and petrochemists.
When we passed the half-way point, I realized that, if there is no result, we just get to the money – says the inventor. – Turning back was not. A year later, a small laboratory setup, which gave 80 percent of some light oil. It was not gasoline and not diesel. It was a common substance.
But there is hope, and with it the first partner to invest in the project. A year later the inventors were already installation, capable of processing 300 pounds of waste for 12 hours. From test tube to the barrel is bright while the mixed oil products. And the first industrial installation was created in 2013. She was able to process three tons of raw material per day.
Now an industrial design processes six tons of waste. Two reactors are placed in a small hangar and work alternately: one uploaded, the second is currently undergoing maintenance. Then change. The setting employs two people. From tons of loaded waste, of polyethylene or polypropylene reactors give almost a ton of useful fractions. The output is gasoline, diesel fuel, petrolatum (a mixture of refractory and low-melting paraffin), gas mixture and carbonaceous residue.
– With each kilogram of polymers, we obtain environmentally friendly gasoline and diesel additives, says Ramsey of Seydametov. From liquid fractions, the rest is paraffin. For his research need additional��niteline equipment. Carbon residue that looks like coal. It also burns and gives heat. It is possible to make coal dust and burned through the nozzle. The installation is completely self-sufficient, that gas that comes out of it, enough to boil the next reactor.
Gasoline, which is obtained on the installation of back cracking, the Crimean constructed by the inventors, has an octane number above 95. So pour it into the tank of the car in its pure form is not necessary, you can ruin the engine. It’s more of a gasoline additive that should be used in a mixture with fuel from the gas station. Mix ratio Ramsey brought himself because of the laboratory research on this topic he asked for 8 thousand dollars. Now light oil products from the plant Seydametov drive the surrounding farmers. Check them out in practice, see how the engine is running. Own car inventor, is also involved in the study. After all, the cost of these petroleum products is much lower than any other fuel.
this Unique setting and whether Crimeans managed to solve the problem, over which fighting in many countries? Of course, similar studies and similar installations in the world are, says Ramsey. He follows the news on this subject for years. The installation is unique in that removes 98 percent of factions, demanded in the market, with one heating.
Entrepreneurs continue to improve his invention. For the digitalization project of the software, and now the entire production cycle can be managed from anywhere in the world. Technology improved, we have a project installation capacity of 30 tons per day. While raw materials an incredible number. The current six-ton installation, according to the calculations of entrepreneurs, will process a maximum of one percent of plastic waste on the largest in the Crimea Turgenev range. To clear the entire Peninsula from the non-degradable waste, according to estimates Remzi Seydametov, you need 20-25 30-ton units. But the problem is that a piece of their production is quite expensive. One such installation will cost around 5.25 million dollars. Mass production could reduce the project’s cost, but yet no one can.
About the invention of the Crimean people in the Republic already knows a lot, from the farmer to the Minister of environment and head of the Republic. In 2018 in his shop was visited by the future Prime Minister of Crimea Yuri Hotsanic. Sergey Aksenov genuinely wants to accelerate the project, says Ramsey, but a Bank loan for businesses just unbearable. The company Seydametov included in the draft of the new territorial scheme for the treatment of municipal waste. This means that once it is approved, it will pay at least for disposal of harmful polyethylene and polypropylene. In the meantime, even landfill raw materials for its installation, the owner buys.
Before January 1, 2019 in Russia it was forbidden to bury the 67 types of waste, which include valuable components. The decree of the RF Government of 25 July 2017 N 1589-p
January 1, 2019 Russia banned the disposal of 40 different types of waste, including uncontaminated waste from polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyacrylates, polyethylene terephthalate, and heterogeneous polymeric materials that do not contain Halogens.
Anatoly Petrov, head of the regional centre of ANO “housing control”:
– At the level of the Public chamber of the Crimea, we now offer bill banning the sale of disposable plastic bags and disposable plastic tableware. Many countries have already gone this route, many brands refused to use plastic packaging in favor of paper. Countries that before we started to sort the waste already stocked landfill these polymers, they simply have nowhere to store. And I don’t believe that today someone could offer an effective technology of their processing. Therefore, our proposal is to prohibit the sale in the Crimea, products made of polymers, clogging up the Peninsula.
