Plastic is one type of macromolecule formed by the polymerization process. Polymerization is a process of merging between several simple molecules through a chemical process to become a larger molecule. The elements contained in plastic include carbon and hydrogen. At this time plastic waste has been found in many areas and of course many are not in recycling. Recycling is the process of reprocessing goods that have no selling value.
As we know that lately there is a lot of plastic waste in the sea so, from that, people are now starting to move to clean it together. As described in the article http://www.kompasiana.com/mariahardayanto/5a245b40d14aeb39355c58b2/bersama-kita-bisa-atasi-masalah-sampah-di-lautan.
Regardless, as a society, we also have to help them to reduce the waste of plastic in the sea. Therefore, the following stages of plastic waste processing into fuel!
Collection of Materials – The initial stage that needs to be done is to collect plastic waste in the form of bottles or plastic from food wrappers and the like.
Cutting – Waste that has been collected earlier than going through the process of cutting to make it easier for the next processing. (read: Natural Resource Management)
Heating & Distribution – The next step is that the cut plastic is inserted into the distillation tube to be heated to a temperature between 250-400 degrees Celsius. The combustion device in this process can be made from the former LPG gas tube that serves as a heating tube. Then the heating tube is connected to a distillation pipe that has been connected to the heater vapor heating tube.
Cooling – The steam generated from the heating process will then be cooled until it is completely cold until it becomes oil.
Purifying – Once cool, the refined oil will be clarified further to find out which ones are gasoline and which ones become kerosene.
