So whats the use of the product obtained?
Pyrolysis oil is used as a fuel in burners for heating in all industries. It has a high calorific value of 10,500. And hence, It is a direct substitute to fuels like diesel, LDO, Furnace oils in industrial applications.
Bureau of Indian Standards has issued ‘GUIDELINES FOR RECYCLING OF PLASTICS’ (Indian Standard IS 14534 : 1998).
