Plasma Gasification of Surrogate and Real Waste Plastics
Model (standard polyethylene PE) and real plastic waste (polyethylene terephthalate PET and polyethylene PE bottle scraps and polyethylanated carton scraps) were decomposed in a carbon arc plasma. Total conversion of reactants into highly unsaturated products (mostly acetylene) was achieved with some additional hydrocarbons being formed from the evolving hydrogen and carbon vapours resulting from graphite electrode sublimation.
