Plastics disposal is the serious environmental problem. Estimated that the plastics production is increased every year by ~ 8 percent. When landfilled - no degradation; not easy to burn in incinerators; "ocean soup" is the greatest indication of the issue. Pyrolysis of plastics is a perfect solurtion to the problem.
Plastics pyrolysis (mode I)
Plastics pyrolysis and pyrolysis oil recovery
Plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene can be used fro pyrolysis oil recovery, which after by upgrading by distillation eventually can be used e.g. in diesel generators.
Plastics pyrolysis (mode II)
Plastics pyrolysis and energy generation
Plastics is a high calorific waste. Plastics pyrolysis followed by waste heat recovery, steam production and electricity generation by a steam turbine is an efficient waste-to-energy plant.
