Promising Recovery Directions for Waste Plastic as an Energy Source: A Brief Overview

The goal of this research is to present a summary of energy recovery from waste plastics, which could be used as an alternative energy source in the near future. For a developing country like India, energy security and the transition to a thriving low-carbon economy are vital. India may be able to increase its energy security, encourage small businesses and farmers to engage the energy industry, and cut emissions by combining locally produced ethanol with gasoline. However, the increasing use of plastic objects creates considerable disposal issues as well as environmental concerns. Some researchers believe that pyrolysis-produced waste plastic fuel could be utilised to replace fossil fuels. The recycling and disposal of waste plastic has the potential to save and recover a lot of energy. The chemical properties of waste plastic fuel vary based on the type of plastic and the pyrolysis procedure used to make it. The possibilities for recovering energy from waste plastics are examined and summarised.
