Plastics and Rubber to Liquid Fuels

The vacuum pyrolysis process will be operated at temperatures between 370؛C-420؛C in which thermal degradation of a material takes place in the absence of oxygen. Materials such plastics and rubber are continuously processed in a chamber to produce pyrolytic gases which are then condensed to yield hydrocarbon distillates in the form of straight and branched chains of aliphatics, cyclic aliphatics and
aromatic hydrocarbons. The produced mixture is very similar to petroleum distillate and is then condensed and separated by fractional distillation to produce liquid fuel products.
