Abstract

The pyrolysis of different contaminated plastic wastes has been investigated in a 2.0 dm3 autoclave at 450 and 500°C under nitrogen. Results show considerable differences in yields and quality of products applying different pre-treatings and parameters. The properties of the products were determined by standardized methods, gas chromatography and FTIR. The gaseous products of the pyrolysis were distributed in the range of C 1-C5 and consisted of different inorganic compounds. Liquids can be characterized as hydrocarbons in the carbon atom range of 5-34, with mainly aliphatic compounds. In the liquid products were different heteroatom containing organic compounds, too. The contaminant level of products considerably can be decreased by washing of the raw materials while the parameters of pyrolysis have only negligible effect on this.
