The hottest recycled waste plastics are converted

Recycled waste plastics can be converted into alternative fuels

researchers at Northeast University in Boston, USA, recently announced that waste plastics can be converted into alternative fuels, and a facility has been designed to convert plastic waste into clean energy, while minimizing the release of harmful emissions

the research team has developed a waste burner, which can crack non biodegradable plastics to form an alternative source of fuel. The results of the prototype facility were released at the fifth annual meeting of the MIT Energy Conference in March, 2010

self sustainability is the key to the design of double tank burner in this system. Plastic waste is first treated by pyrolysis in the previous tank, which converts solid plastic into gas. Then, the gas flows to a relatively simple tank in the next test project. In the next tank, the gas is burned with oxidant to generate heat and steam. Heat energy supports the burner, while steam can be used to generate electricity

the prototype facility can be scaled up and can be used to drive large power plants, which can be linked to the plastic universal tensile testing machine system maintenance material recycling center to supply a stable fuel source

it is said that calculations show that with this new technology, if all recycled plastics are treated in the United States alone, it can have the potential to replace 462million gallons of oil. The fuel developed by using this system can reduce the cost of power generation in the future
