Liquid fuels from polypropylene plastic waste and co-reactants biodiesel from Waste Cooking Oil have been successfully performed by catalytic cracking method. The catalyst used is Al-MCM-41: Ceramics with ratio 7:3. The catalyst was characterized by XRD, SEM, Pyridine-FTIR, N2-Adsorption-Desorption, and the product of catalytic cracking were investigated by GC-MS. The Liquid fuels obtained was mixed with commercial fuels and MTBE with ratio (10:87.5:2.5). The results showed liquid fuels have the largest percentage of gasoline (C7-C12) are 93.92 fraction produced. The performance of liquid fuels is enhanced with the additive MTBE investigated by generator set engine with gasoline-based fuel. The liquid fuel blends on the CB50 feedstock variation has the highest percentage of thermal efficiency of 27.42%, with a density value of 722.55 Kg/m3, a flash point of -5.9 ° C, a viscosity of 0.238 cst, and a heating value of 15,465, 94 Kcal/Kg. Characteristics of liquid fuel blends (CB) manufactured in accordance with SNI 06-3506-1994. Addition of the MTBE additive enhances the performance of CB100 mixture by 0.74% to the variation of TCB100 and 4.66% to Premium RON 88 at maximum loading of 2090 Watt. Characteristic of liquid fuels produced were also suitable with commercial gasoline standard.
