Cut scene: final clip of Back to the Future I. Doc Brown peels into the drive in the DeLorian to pick up Marty McFly. He opens the hood and dumps banana peels and beer cans into the “Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor” to fuel up for their trip to the future. That’s a fantasy of Hollywood! Or is it?
Not to RES Polyflow, who designs and manufactures energy recovery systems that convert mixed polymer waste to fuels and petrochemicals. The RES Polyflow process is robust and is designed to handle the types and percentages of polymers present in the modern waste stream as reported by the EPA. They specialize in recycling the hard to handle categories of plastic waste and converting them to fuel.
KSU Geauga and GGP invite the business community and the general public to learn how the future is here now:

The responsible management of end of life plastic continues to be one of the grand challenges for consumers and manufacturers worldwide. Our waterways and oceans continue to find themselves as a final resting place for much of the packaging and plastic film generated by the world’s economy. At the same time, precious landfill space is allocated to bury these energy rich materials where they lie dormant for thousands of years untapped.
One Geauga County company is set to change the current waste paradigm by commercializing a technology that will not only revolutionize plastic recycling in the U.S. and abroad but will begin the process of adopting a circular economy within the petrochemical industry where a post-use item such as a plastic shopping bag can be efficiently repurposed as an input for a new polymer product or a high demand transportation fuel.
Learn more about the RES Polyflow story and how plastic waste is being redefined as a viable building block for our economy. There will also be a live walk-through after the session of the company’s proprietary process that is housed in a mobile system to convert any type of post-use plastic into high demand hydrocarbon liquid.
