Abstract

The conversion of polypropylene plastic waste and used palm oil co-reactant into liquid fuel has been successfully carried out. The conversion was carried out by catalytic pyrolysis method. In this study, polystyrene (PS) plastic waste and polystyrene/used palm oil biodiesel (PS/BMJ) were used as raw materials to produce liquid fuels through the catalytic pyrolysis process. The catalyst used in this study was Al-MCM-41: Ceramics (7:3). The results showed that liquid fuel has high gasoline (C7-C12) fraction. The liquid fuels that blended with 750 mL premium and 18.4 mL MTBE has good thermal efficiency and calorific value.
