ABSTRACT:

Polystyrene, polypropylene and polyethylene terephthalate mixture into fuel recover experiment was performing into laboratory scale. Batch process experiment was setup under labconco fume hood without vacuum system. Experimental purpose total waste plastics was use 100 gm and sample ration was PP 40g, PS 40 g and PETE 20 g by weight. Product fuel density is 0.79 g/ml and fuel color is light yellow. PP, PS and PETE mixture to fuel conversion rate was 78%. Product fuel was analysis by GC/MS and compounds range obtain C3 to C24 including aromatic, aliphatic, oxygen content, halogen content, alcoholic and nitrogen content. Product fuel can use as a heating fuel and its can run combustion engines or feed for refinery process.
