The expert report provides a brief overview of the currently offered or operated oiling and pyrolysis processes in Germany. In addition, it was examined to what extent these methods are suitable for the production of secondary resources and which waste (type and quantity) can be used here. Two oiling processes (Dieselwest, Logoil) for plastic waste and a pyrolysis process (tire pyrolysis) for used tires were selected. On the basis of the available data and the knowledge gained from it, an assessment is made as to whether the processes could be of importance in the future for waste treatment and what further steps are required for a possible large-scale implementation.
