ABSTRACT
High density polyethylene (HDPE) waste plastic was investigated into a lab scale and produced light hydrocarbon fuel by using fractional column distillation. Two step process applied with this experiment 1st step process produced short to long chain hydrocarbon and 2nd step process produced only light hydrocarbon fuel without using any kind of catalyst. 1st step temperature range used I00-420 °C and 2nd step temperature range used for light hydrocarbon 40-60 °C. The first fraction fuel collected is light carbon gasoline grade fuel and 2nd fraction fuel is heavier is labeled as diesel grade fuel. Light hydrocarbon fuel density is 0.72 gm/ml. produced light hydrocarbon fuel is analyzed using GC/MC, FT-IR and DSC equipments.
