Paper Title:Production of Biofuel Compounds from Different Plastic Wastes


Plastics have been one of the materials with the fastest growth because of their wide range of applications due to versatility and relatively low cost. The duration of life of plastic products is relatively small, there is a vast plastics waste stream that reaches each year to the final recipients creating a serious environmental problem. In this paper attempt has been made to investigate the conversion of waste plastic into liquid fuel by using pyrolysis process, a pyrolysis unit is designed, fabricated and evaluated for various kinds of plastic wastes, properties of liquid fuels obtained are determined. Blending with diesel fuel is done.
