Abstract: With a view to the environment protection and reduction of non-regeneration resource, recycling technology for converting to oil from plastic waste has drawn much attention in the world. India has also witnessed a substantial growth in the consumption of plastics and an increased production of plastic waste. Hence, the basis theories and the technology for industrialization of plastic liquefaction is the broad area of research today. The variety in plastic waste composition and differences in thermal degradation behavior makes modeling, design, and operation of thermal conversion systems a challenge. The aim of this study is to obtain detailed information on the pyrolysis characteristics like degradation ability with and without catalyst, chemical kinetics and the nature of liquefaction of most important waste plastics. A thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) including determination of kinetic parameters was performed at different constant heating rates of 5, 10, 15, 20oC/min in an inert at...
