Co-Energy’s plant is installed in Shahaf, enabling the company use the huge amounts of plastic waste at their disposal to produce its own electricity for self-consumption.

The project’s goal was to use a catalytic system to convert plastic waste into fuel, which in turn will power up a genset that will generate 750KW.

The requirements were to convert plastic waste to electricity via:

  1. Receiving unsorted dry plastic waste, mostly polyethylene and propylene, and shred it as pretreatment, preparing it to feed into the reactor.
  2. Using Co-Energy’s unique and innovative technology to convert the plastic waste to fuel.
  3. Using the fuel to power a genset to generate 750 KW at 400V.
  4. Treat all emissions, whether gas or liquid, in compliance with the most rigorous environmental standards.

Project Shahaf was Co-Energy’s premier project, and we take great pride in it. The plant attracts business owners from the entire State of Israel, seeing in their own eyes how plastic waste can be regarded as a source for electricity, in a smooth, clean and financially profitable process. We look forward to continue support the plant in Shahaf and watch it exemplify the founding idea at the heart of Co-Energy.
