Thermal Conversion ProcessThe Thermal Conversion Process (TCP™) is the most technologically advanced solution for the conversion of all carbon containing (organic and petroleum-based) materials such as most waste and chemicals, into ecological and useful products.
TCP uses the most potent and yet harmless reagent to perform its miracle chemistry; Water .
Four types of main products are obtained as a result of this process: renuwable crude oil , renewable natural gas , high nutriment containing liquid fertilizer and solid biochar.
There are 4 (four) basic steps in TCP:
- Raw material preparation
- Depolymerization process
- High-efficiency Hydrolysis process
- By-products are passed through final stage reactions developed by SynPet Technologies

TCP vs other technologies
Pyrolysis and Gasification are alternative methods that have been previously proposed to handle Waste.
They both require extensive feedstock preparation ( sorting / cleaning / drying ) which are not required by TCP.
Pyrolysis process is defined as heating material in oxygen-free environment. Pyrolysis processes decompose polymer chains at high tempereature like TCP. If the feedstock is not based on already pure hydrocarbon material, the gas, the oil and the solid produced contain hetero atoms , making their use as further feedstock for circular economy hopeless. Such technologies must therefore also invest heavily on the back end in order to “clean” their main products.
Gasification processes require also a hefty pre-sorting and drying as the feedstock must be heated to very high temperatures. The gases and then converted to a final product ( Methanol for example) through use of Fisher Tropsch technologies ( using catalysts).
