Global leader in Next Gen recycling
Licella Holdings Ltd (Licella) is the global leader in hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL), the next generation of advanced recycling.
The patented Cat-HTR™ technology platform reduces, recycles and recaptures carbon from a wide variety of recovered resources, both plastic and biomass feedstocks, across multiple markets.
The Licella technology creates sustainable oil from a wide variety of recovered resources, both plastic, and biomass – reducing the demand for fossil oil by recycling and recapturing carbon.
The proprietary technology offers substantial energy savings, efficiency and product quality compared to gasification and pyrolysis.
We are working closely with many commercial joint venture partners including Canfor Forestry Products, Shell Catalysts and Technologies, Dow Chemicals, Mitsubishi, and KBR.
The Cat-HTR™ Process
Recapturing Carbon from Recovered Resources:
High-value, low emissions alternative to burning or burying, biomass or plastic
Biomass is a renewable feedstock – trees and crops can be replanted to offset those removed
Working with nature’s carbon cycle means extracting less fossil resources
