Conventional Fuel Generated from Polypropylene (PP) Waste Plastic like Kerosene/Jet / Aviation Grade with Activated Carbon

By Moinuddin Sarker, Mohammad Mamunor Rashid and Muhammad Sadikur Rahman


ABSTRACT: The thermal degradation and fractional distillation process applied with polypropylene (PP) of waste plastic using stainless steel reactor without using any kind of catalyst. The polymer has been selected for the experiment 100 % by weight and 1 % activated carbon was used. The experimental temperature was used for thermal degradation liquefaction process at 100-400 ºC and fractional distillation for third fraction fuel or aviation/kerosene/jet category fuel collection temperature was 180-210 ºC and overall experiment run time was 6-6.30 hours. The obtained products density is 0.75 g/ml and production yield percentage are third fraction liquid fuel or aviation/kerosene/jet category fuel yield is 30.40%, other fraction fuel percentage was 62.60 % light gas 3 % and black carbon residue 4%. Various techniques (Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometer, FT-IR and DSC) were used for produced third fraction fuel or aviation/kerosene/jet category fractional fuel analysis purpose. GC/MS result is showing that hydrocarbon compound ranges in this fuel are C8-C19 and light gas are present hydrocarbon range C1-C4. Third fractional fuel or kerosene / jet / aviation category fuel analysis results is showing different carbon range and produced third fractional fuel present short chain to long chain hydrocarbon like alkane and alkene group. Produce fuel can be use for internal combustion engine or electricity generation or feed stock refinery process
