Quantafuel delivers technology for production of advanced environmentally friendly fuels and chemicals to the plastic industry.
Quantafuel’s core technology is catalysis. Quantafuel’s proprietary catalytic systems are tailored to fit different chemical processes converting materials containing low-value carbon into high-quality synthetic fuels.
Quantafuel combines its own technology with “state of the art and science” equipment from other technology vendors to assemble production plants with superior product quality, conversion factors and cost.
QF PtL Plant (Plastic to Liquid fuel)
While the supply of plastic waste as raw material is abundant, it will not, even in theory, be enough to cover the demand for fuel or chemicals in the foreseeable future.
Today, the QF process produces four different products. These are ash fraction (70wt% carbon), light fraction, C6 – C12, diesel fraction, C11 to C21, and heavy fraction, C20 to C28. The approximate amount of the different fractions relative to plastic feed are; ash – 10 wt%, light fraction – 16 wt%, diesel fraction – 56 wt% and heavy fraction – 8 wt%.
All fractions may be used to produce chemicals of some form. So far, QF has focused on the diesel fraction and the light fraction. The light fraction may be used to produce plastic monomers and chemicals like benzene, toluene, xylene, mesitylene, indene etc. The ash may have several uses like addition to asphalt, source for carbon black and others. The heavy fraction may be used as Marine Gas Oil, source for plastic monomers and for chemicals.
Quantafuel ́s proprietary technology and extensive experience with catalytical optimization has contributed to interest from a number of countries. The company now has several plastic-to-liquid projects in advanced development stages, most with signed joint venture term sheets in place.

Quantafuels first European plant is now officially established at Greenlab green industrial park in Skive, Denmark. GreenLab Skive is a innovative park which will be located in a designated energy and resource landscape on the outskirts of Skive. The purpose of GreenLab Skive is to create one of Europe’s leading centers for renewable energy and Quantafuel is proud to be part of the project which provide an ideal location for our activity in close cooperation with local businesses and municipality.
The Quantafuel plant in Skive will source plastic from local suppliers and produce local, environmentally friendly, high-quality fuel.
The Skive plant will have an initial capacity of 60 metric tonnes of plastic waste per day, and will convert approximately 18 000 tons of plastic waste per year. This is plastic waste which would otherwise be exported or incinerated.
Quantafuel will produce more than 15 million litres of high-quality recycled fuel, making our first European plant an important green initiative in Denmark.
