Nowadays Recycling waste plastic in the way of thermal pyrolysis becomes more and more popular. Through pyrolysis, we can extract fuel oil from plastic waste and this kind of fuel oil can be used as industrial heating energy. But what are the quality of the fuel oil from plastic waste, and what is its advantages and disadvantages?
Fuel oil and carbon black from plastic waste
Advantages of fuel oil from plastic waste:
The fuel oil from plastic waste is a kind of heavy oil which has heating value ＞10000kcal/L, even higher than some diesel, so you can well take the advantage of its high heating value, and use it for boilers, cement factory, steel mill and glass factory, etc as the diesel, coal as well as wood substitute. For e.g. a steel mill will consume hundreds tons of fuel oil from plastic waste. Our Macedonia customer just do the expanding of his waste pyrolysis plant factory after getting order for plastic fuel oil from one steel mill in his area.
The application of fuel oil from plastic waste
Disadvantages of fuel oil from plastic waste:
However, there are also disadvantages of fuel oil from plastic waste. Fuel oil from plastic waste has higher sulfur content than normal diesel, but no need too worry about this, because many industries are equipped with environment protection devices to scrubber the smoke produced in the heating process. Besides, the other disadvantage of fuel oil from plastic waste is lower flash point. The flash point of fuel oil from plastic waste is ＜40 degrees, and flash point of normal diesel is about 50 degrees. Flash point mainly influence on the fuel oil transportation, but it is already proved by our customers in different areas in the world that the fuel oil transportation is not a problem.
Waste oil distillation plant converting fuel oil to diesel
Actually the disadvantages of fuel oil from plastic waste can be improved a lot through our waste oil distillation plant. After process of distillation, oil color & odor removal as well as filtering, diesel-like fuel can be extracted from plastic fuel oil.
