PVC, Recycle, Methane, Chlorine, Alternate fuel.
Polyvinylchloride (PVC) [-(-CH2 -CHCl-) n-] is one of the three most important polymers currently used worldwide. This is because PVC is one of the cheapest polymers to make and has a large range of properties so can be used to make hundreds of products. Plastics are high molecular weight organic materials, which can be molded into any shape when subjected to heat and pressure in the presence of a catalyst. Essential for this success are low life-cycle costs, longevity, and the recyclability of these high-quality products. Current methods of recycling of poly vinyl chloride (PVC) are highly risky & skill oriented and produces highly toxic gases such as chlorine which is a potential carcinogen. The result of the defined mechanical recycling process is to minimize the chlorine level from 90% to 10% and to produce methane gas, which is an alternate fuel. The percentage of methane in the residual gas of this process will be studied using a gas analyzer, the fuel properties, heat capacity, flash point and fire point will be experimentally studied and the efficiency of this process will proved. Our aim is to recycle the PVC and to obtain an alternate fuel. The produced gas (Methane) can be utilized for domestic cooking, for which there are some modifications required for burner and gas stove, which will be studied and analyzed in this project.
