Abstract—Incineration has been the only effective way of reducing plastic waste after recycling in the modern societies, yet a better solution for processing waste plastics and simultaneously producing renewable energy is presented and demonstrated in this paper. R-ONETM, an optimized Pyrolysis technology converting varieties of plastic waste into clean and low sulfur content fuel which meets the most stringent international standard, emits no toxic gases such as Dioxins and other secondary pollution. R-ONETM recycles 100% of its own output of syngas (5-10%) as the major energy source while converting around 80% of the mixed plastic waste into high grade fuel; and the other 10-15% into carbon black. In comparison with incinerators, carbon dioxide production by R-ONETM is around 100X lower. Furthermore, its energy efficiency (from the energy balance calculation) is one of the highest in the world compared to any renewable energy technologies or any waste processing technologies. Both of these objectives are reached by R-ONETM.
