Visit to the pyrolysis test unit in Chempark Záluží near Litvínov

ORLEN Unipetrol RPA’s plant, located in Záluží near Litvínov, is the only place in the Czech Republic producing primary polymers on an ethylene unit. Thanks to this, this plant is gradually becoming a hotspot of activity in the field of chemical recycling, a process which transforms waste plastic packaging and more into liquids (e.g., using various thermal decomposition technologies), which can in turn serve as raw materials for the production of recycled polymers of the same quality as virgin polymers.

It is therefore logical that ORLEN Unipetrol RPA has been engaged in research and development in this area for a long time, and the test pyrolysis unit, which we will visit together as part of the excursion, is one of the main pillars of that research. You will be able to familiarize yourself with how such a unit can look and also how integrating waste plastics into the chemical industry’s raw material portfolio can contribute to developing circular economy principles in Czech Republic.
