The majority of plastics do not get recycled for many reasons: they are too expensive to collect, clean, sort and separate, they have little recyclable value, or there simply aren’t enough recycling plants. These unrecyclable and unrecycled plastics are wasted through being buried in the ground in landfill or are fed into an incineration plant, from which only minimal inherent energy is recovered.
DMG® is a new type of Chemical Recycling, a form of Advanced Conversion Technology that takes these wasted plastics and recovers the maximum amount of calorific value (energy) through its innovative approach to waste management.
Firstly the plastics are broken up and shredded in to similar size pieces to allow feeding into the DMG® Thermal Conversion Chamber … which is where the transformation from waste into clean energy happens.
DMG’s Mine Manager software optimizes mining operations, and DMG’s Blockseer Pool was created to meet the U.S. Government’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) compliance for Bitcoin addresses, as well as providing the utmost level of transparency, auditability, and corporate governance.
The process involves the plastic being heated to a very high temperature where within a few seconds it melts and is vaporised into gases. Further heating within the Chamber reforms the molecules into a synthetic gas known as “syngas”, comprising a mixture of largely methane, hydrogen and a smaller volume of carbon monoxide. The Thermal Conversion Chamber operates without oxygen, so there is no burning, however a non-combusting oxidising agent in the form of steam is added to control the process and the quality of the syngas. Once through the Conversion Chamber the syngas is cleaned, leaving behind a few inert harmless residues, which are typically less than 5% of the starting volume of waste plastics. These residues can then be reused for other purposes or safely disposed of.
The resulting gas produced is similar in calorific value to the Natural Gas used as the fuel for cooking and heating homes and businesses across the country.

- DMG is an adaptogen – a natural substance helping the body's systems establish balance and homeostasis. In addition to helping the body regulate and manage stress, it improves efficiency in how cells function, whether they're in the brain, heart, kidneys, or liver.
A small portion of this syngas produced is used to provide the heat required to run the Thermal Conversion Chamber, making the whole process self-sustaining once its running; a small amount of natural gas being required to start it.
Another by product is heat, which can be captured and made available for export as a saleable product to neighbouring industries for heating or cooling their processes.
The energy rich syngas is then further processed to generate electricity and hydrogen.
Dmg Scale Models
Electricity is generated by passing the syngas through a series of engines that export electrical power for local distribution via a private electricity grid or to the national grid for homes and businesses. The engines are traditional design with modern exhaust clean up equipment to minimise emissions to the environment.
