Plastic Energy

We offer a global solution to help everyone prevent plastic pollution, by transforming previously unrecyclable plastic waste into a valuable resource.

Our patented, low carbon footprint technology converts valueless plastic waste into alternative fuels, or oil (TACOIL) for making new virgin (foodsafe) plastics, closing the plastic loop and creating a circular economy.


We are the only Global company that have successfully and consistently produced enough chemical feedstock (oil) to enable conversion back into plastic.

Our Technology HQ is in the UK and we own and operate two plastic recycling plants in Seville and Almeria (Spain) - operational since 2014 and 2017.

Our team of technology specialists have more than 50 years’ combined experience in developing the unique, patented process called Thermal Anaerobic Conversion (TAC). This converts plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill, burnt or in the oceans; into oil, or back into virgin plastic (Plastic2Plastic).

Preventing Plastic Pollution

Every day more than one million tonnes of plastic are produced worldwide. After a short first-use cycle, 95% of this plastic resource is squandered and every year more than eight million tonnes of plastic waste leaks into the world’s oceans.

Plastic Energy’s technology is a solution that recycles previously unrecyclable (end-of-life or contaminated) plastic to endlessly reuse it and create a circular economy.
The conversion from plastic to plastic prevents plastic pollution and could save up to $300 billion worth of plastic dumped in landfills each year.


The use of plastics has increased twentyfold in the past half-century

The Circular Economy

We want to drive the adoption of the circular, regenerative economy of plastics, by recycling previously unrecyclable (end-of-life or contaminated) plastic waste. We do this by diverting contaminated plastic waste from landfills and from the oceans, as well as preventing future plastic pollution.

Closing the ‘plastic loop’ would dramatically improve the environment and create local employment opportunities; helping our clients to meet their social and environmental responsibilities.
