Keywords:

Waste plastics, Pyrolysis, Calorific value, Viscosity.

Abstract

The ever increasing quantity of plastic wastes generated in the modern world has posed several social and health problems.Over a several million tonnes of plastics are produced annually worldwide and the used products has become a common feature at overflowing bins and landfills. Though work has been done to make futuristic biodegradable plastics, there have not been many conclusive steps towards cleaning up the existing problem. Here, the process of converting waste plastic into value added fuels is explained as a viable solution for recycling of plastics. Thus two universal problems such as problems of waste plastic and problems of fuel shortage are being tackled simultaneously. In this study, plastic wastes are used for the pyrolysis to get fuel oil that has the same physical properties as the fuels like petrol, diesel etc. Pyrolysis runs without oxygen and in high temperature, which is why a reactor is fabricated to provide the required temperature for the reaction. Converting waste plastics into fuel hold great promise for both the environmental and economic scenarios. Thus, the process of converting plastics to fuel has now turned the problems into an opportunity to make wealth from waste.
