Abstract

Pyrolysis of waste polymers looks attractive way for their transforming into valuable hydrocarbons. Due to the high number of reactions, the detailed kinetic modeling of the pyrolysis process is often not feasible. Hence the so-called lumping technique is often used to study these complex systems. In this study, the pyrolysis reactions were modeled in a two stage laboratory scale batch reactor using five component lumps. For pyrolysis the mixtures of real plastic waste were used. Kinetic parameters were identified and the model results were compared to the experimental results. It was found that the suggested model can properly describe the dynamic behavior of the reactor under semi batch conditions.
