PLASTIC from used Personal Protective Equipment(PPE) can be transformed into renewable liquid fuels, Biofuels, according to a new study in the journal published by the Taylor & Francis Group. The research describes a strategy for converting billions of items of disposable PPE from its plastic state into biofuels. The transformation into biocrude, a type of synthetic fuel, will prevents the after effects to humankind and enviroment and will also be a source of energy.
The researchers call for PPE waste to be converted into fuel using chemical process called Pyrolysis.Thid breaks down plastic at high temperature-between 300 celcius and 400 celcius for an hour-without oxygen.
