Plastics waste management: A review of pyrolysis technology
The world is today faced with the problem of plastic waste pollution more than ever before. Global plastic production continues to accelerate, despite the fact that recycling rates are
A review on Transforming plastic wastes into fuel
The application of plastics in various sectors led to its increased production globally and this demand, in turn, caused an overflow of plastic waste in landfills, illegal dumping in the sea, and
Strategic Approach Towards Plastic Waste Valorization: Challenges and Promising Chemical Upcycling Possibilities.
TLDR
A comprehensive insight is provided on the promising chemical routes available for upcycling of the most widely used plastic and mixed plastic wastes to create high-value materials to compensate for the cost of production.
Design of Pyrolysis Reactor for Waste Plastic Recycling
There is an increase in the production and consumption of plastics in day to day life. All plastics are disposed as waste after their usage. The need to intervene through proper disposal and
