Plastic waste is regarded as potentially economy source of chemicals and energy. Lots of us have come across a variety of products that use plastic materials today. As a result of the increasing level of private consumption of these plastic materials huge amounts of wastes are discharged to the environment. Catalytic cracking is a process that converts waste plastics into valuable liquid hydrocarbon products t hat can be utilized as an energy source for numerous purposes such as diesel engines, generators, vehicles, etc. The gaseous by - product obtained in the process can be used for domestic use by refilling it in the cylinders and also to run gas turbines. Thu s cracking process can be considered as another non - conventional energy source. Crude oil is the ultimate source of plastics and most of the chemicals. Out of total 100 million tons plastics produced every year all over the world, 25 million tons is dumped . By throwing away such heavy amount of waste plastics, wasting lots of energy in the form of crude oil that is used to make plastics. The wasted energy can be recovered back using Pyrolysis process. This process save our conventional energy source i.e. cr ude oil. In this scenario our paper aims to solve the twin problem of environment pollution due to plastic and need for an alternative fuel source
