The Cynar Technology represents a unique means of dealing with problematic waste plastic by diverting it from landfill while contributing to EU renewable fuel targets. However, systematic quantification of the environmental impacts associated with waste plastic-to-fuel pathways must be carried out to determine the potential for any environmental benefits or burdens before extensive implementation of the technology. This project aims to develop and apply consequential life cycle assessment methodology to evaluate the environmental impacts, on both waste plastic and fuel markets, resulting from the deployment of waste-to-fuel technologies and hence significantly advance the state of the art in this area.
