Pyrolysis of Polypropylene (PP) Into Liquid Fuel Using CaO Catalyst
Pyrolysis has been performed on Polypropylene thermoplastic compounds to produce liquid fuel using CaO catalyst. The pyrolysis process takes place at a temperature of 480 oC with variations in the weight of the catalyst CaO 0; 2.5; 5; 10 g. The highest oil quantity was obtained by adding 5 g of catalyst by 49.5% with the percentage of gas and coke was 50.33% and 0.66%, respectively. in general, the results of GC-MS analysis show the content of liquid fuels in the form of hydrocarbons with carbon content in the C4-C12 and C13-C24 ranges which is predicted as fractions of gasoline and diesel.
