The complexity of the client’s recycling technology offered unique challenges to Koch Modular engineers. Proper instrumentation selection, piping design that can handle viscous streams, as well as the incorporation of change orders in the project timeline were among these challenges. Given the large amount of equipment necessary for this complex process, Koch Modular engineers were particularly challenged in packaging everything into a working modular system and allowing for proper operator and maintenance access.
The system provided by Koch Modular was critical in demonstrating the validity of the client’s technology that converts waste plastic into ultra-pure recycled polypropylene.
A commercial-scale plant now under construction with Koch Modular. The development of this process at commercial scale will provide a much needed response to the global need for recycled polypropylene to reduce landfilling, export of plastic waste, and other environmentally damaging processes.
