The present study summaries the extraction and analysis of pyrolysed oil derived from waste plastic. The current rate of economic growth is unsustainable without saving of fossil fuels like crude oil, natural gas, coal etc. There has always been an increase in demand for fossil fuels while at the same time a depletion in its amount. Development and modernization have brought about a huge increase in the production of all kinds of commodities using plastics which indirectly generates waste. Plastics have wide range of applications due to versatility and relatively low cost. This project focuses on the importance and implementation of Waste to Energy technology by deriving pyrolysed oil from plastic. The plastic opted for experimentation is High Density Polyethylene due to its properties favoring the process of Pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is the process of thermal degradation of plastic in the absence of oxygen. An experimental setup in order to accomplish pyrolysis was fabricated and thus, the raw pyrolysis oil was extracted. The raw fuel derived was vacuum distilled to obtain the clear pyrolysed oil, whose analysis conducted in a Computer Integrated IC Engine test rig. The performance, efficiency and emission test of the distilled pyrolysed oil was experimentally calculated by blending with diesel at different blend ratios. T. Kathiravan | S. Mohamed Nasrulla | G.
