Degradation of Plastic Wastes (PP, PET, and LDPE) for Liquid Fuel Production as alternative energy by Using Vacuum Pyrolysis Method.


The plastic wastes are the more available material in the environment. These material types are: PolyPropylene (PP),PolyEthylene Terephthalate(PET) and Low Density Poly Ethylene(LDPE). Thermal degradation of those three materials was studied under vacuum environment individually and as a combination of all. The output products were characterized by Gas Chromatography(GC) and Fourier Transform Infra-Red(FTIR). Some of the physical properties was measured such as density, boiling point. The results show that degradation of combined materials was produced liquid fuel compared with standard properties preferable than individual once. A mixture product of same carbonyl compounds such carboxylic acid and unsaturated aldehyde was preliminary characterized.
