Every day we generate thousands of tons of solid waste. Most of this solid waste is not scientifically disposed or recycled.

Mahatma Gandhi said, “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” Read more
A decade ago it was even difficult to image a technology that can dispose plastic waste by converting it to diesel. Pyrocrat Systems LLP has invented a patent pending and proven continuous pyrolysis technology. This pyrolysis technology converts waste plastic into fuel oil which has met the composition of diesel. Plastic is converted into diesel oil using Pyrocrat’s state of art technology. The time is not far wherein pyrolysis oil will be used instead of diesels which will be a sustainable option to diesel derived from fossil fuels. Here is the detailed study:
The new Government is actively creating environment to promote quality and investments in field of waste management. They are drafting new rules for managing waste more effectively than ever before!
Given below is the draft of Proposed MSW Management and Handling Rules 2015 with comments from Pyrocrat’s Experts:
