Over 1.3 billion metric ton of plastic is being manufactured every year to meet the demands of modern world. Plastic is made by polymerization of hydrocarbons. These hydrocarbons are of typically high molecular mass and may contain some other additives to enhance the capabilities of the final product. Plastic is an important material which is strong, durable, and cheap and has numerous other properties. The increased demand and high price for energy sources are driving efforts to convert organic compounds into useful hydrocarbon fuels. Although much of this work has focused on biomass, there are strong benefits to deriving fuels from waste plastic material. Waste plastic is abundant and its disposal creates large problems for the environment. Plastic does not break down in landfills, it is not easily recycled and degrades in quality during the recycling process, and it can produce waste ash, heavy metals, and potentially harmful gas emissions if incinerated at high temperatures. However, thermal processes can be used to convert plastics into hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, diesel, aviation / jet fuel, which have unlimited applications in airline industries, helicopter, heavy transportation, and electricity generation. The method and principle of the production / process will be discussed.
