Both plastic and petro-products are hydrocarbons. The only difference is that hydrocarbon chains in plastic molecules are longer than the molecules in petrol. Therefore, if there exist some mechanism which can break the plastic molecules into smaller parts then they can be converted to oil. Such a method do exist. Alka Zadgaonkar an Indian scientist find a method to convert plastic to petrol.  Any waste plastic can be used to recycle them and convert them into petrol.

The amount of used plastic in India is 10000 tons per day. So if we can collect all the plastics and convert them to petrol then we can get 10% of the petrol used in India per day. It will  provide an alternative fuel to the growing needs of the fuel consumption by utilizing the waste plastic. The method can also give petrol at a cheaper price.

  1. Sir,

    The Municipal Solid Waste without plastic composing is very simple, with plastic composing is not possible. The uniqueness of our Automatic Plastic Separation module and its technology to produce bio manure 99.5% plastic free from Municipal Solid Waste, without using chemicals or genetically modified bacteria’s. The plant working last 4 years without discharging liquid waste, no foul smell, and no fly’s on composting time.

    The Plant is very suitable for Biogas and plastic petrol production
