New catalysts in crystallic form can produce crude oil products from waste

The starting situation 

Fuels from waste and biologically regenerating raw materials represent an increasing alternative to the mineral oil production of oil products for the decentralized energy-technical future.  They are to replace the missing oil quantities of the future increasingly.  For this, a large quantity of suitable waste materials is necessary for the excessive amount of oil to be produced.   Also, grooves are to be partly replaced by the synthetic fuel production.  These hydrocarbon materials are contended in raw biological materials, like wood and plants, but also in the waste products of our civilization, like animal and plant wastes.  Waste oils and  other organic residual substances can be converted with high efficiency to a valuable material in the form of fuel (diesel).  

The time it takes for common recycling procedures, like the high temperature gasification known as Fischer Tropsch synthesis with overall efficiencies of only approxamately 10%, can not carry this out.  This also applies to other well-known procedures like pyrolysis, which besides such as halogens and metal steams hold back  by the plant and thus into the final product arrive do not let the pollutants. 

The cause of this present unsatisfactory situation results from the essential structure of the existing processing methods, which is the transformation of remainder open needs with all well-known procedure temperatures of 450°C and more. The actual transformation is done via the formation of coke crystals, which form starting from this temperature from remainder-openly. 

These decompose the hydrocarbons in the plant nearly completely in coke crystals and methane.  Thus the hydrogen is relocated by the existing hydrocarbons (CH2) into methane (CH4) and the coke crystals (C).  Solid coke crystals and the CH4 (methane gas) is produced from liquifiable hydrocarbons. Coke and methane is able to be further used, however the energy output is unfavourable and the environmental impacts developing with the procedures by CO2, dioxin and Furan are hardly tolerable. 

Other technologies have alternative sources of energy are hydrogen based and are energetically complex with more steps of production, like electrolysis and conversion and finally with higher CO2 –emission or of others limit resources, e.g. platinum in the case of fuel cell, dependently and still in the early development stage.
