Celsius has developed a technology using screw heat exchangers to carry out various pyrolysis processes. Pyrolysis is a sustainable process with a pure end product. Due to the reduction in fossil fuel reserves and the demand for environmentally friendly production methods there is a great need for a sustainable and efficient recycling method.

‘Pyrolysis’ means ‘decomposition caused by heat’. In the Pyrolysis process materials are broken down into separate usable fractions. The material is thermally decomposed, a process also called cracking. It is essential for this process that no oxygen is present. The process environment is inert. There is therefore no 'combustion' involved. What remains, the end product, is a pure product.

The Pyrolysis process is an environmentally friendly and safe method of processing organic material (waste). As a result there is a minimal emission of hazardous substances. The clean product obtained is suitable for recycling and even the Pyrolysis gas given off during the process is recycled in the plant as fuel. Screw heat exchangers have been used successfully in the pyrolysis process for processing biomass, car tyres, coal and Bioliq.
