Obtaining high-quality methylal from non-recyclable plastic waste via an improved Catalytic Hydro-Gasification Plasma(CHGP) process

LIFE-ECOMETHYLAL aims to implement a highly profitable technology to produce methylal called Catalytic Hydro-Gasification with Plasma for the treatment of plastic waste from the automotive, electrical, electronic, and packaging industries that cannot currently be recycled, in order to comply with the waste hierarchy established by EU policies. In consequence, the amount of NRPW sent to landfill will be dramatically reduced and a new eco-product will be created (after material recycling).


Another objective is the production of industrial quality methylal from NPRW (i.e. 0.8 kg methylal/kg plastic waste). This product will replace oil-based solvents and will dramatically reduce the resulting environmental impact.

The project has been co-funded by the IVACE ACTION PLAN 2017, a programme supported by the Valencian Regional Government’s Ministry of Sustainable Economy, Productive Sectors, Trade and Employment through the Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (IVACE).
