Abstract

The present decade saying ban plastic is much worried about the water scarcity. It’s being revealed banning plastic bring more water scarcity as the alternative goods to plastic are more water consuming in its production. Water, air and land being the primary requirement for life should be preserved in every product invention and technological innovation. The present study proposes a suitable technology that saves all the required land resources. The so far used plastics are said to be dump threat to land resources and micro lives in it. The existence of plastic ban is a profound threat to water. Air is being polluted every day due to the exhaust of fuel and heaps of land fill. An alternative to plastics might be good invention but to recycle the already existing plastics are the real solutions to the plastics. Plastics are typically organic polymers of high molecular mass and often contain other substances. They are usually synthetic, most commonly derived from petrochemicals. However an array of variants are made from renewable materials such as polylactic acid from corn or cellulosic from cotton linters. Having a strong chemical bond that makes them degrade very slowly, which creates environmental issues and makes the soil unfit for vegetation. Conversion of plastic into alternative fuel may require high investment in terms of energy. The present project addresses the minimal energy (cost effective) to convert plastic wastes and sources to convert into crude and purified fuel resources. The results revealed that 600-800ml of crude oil can be obtained from one kilogram of one time disposable plastics through paralysis in 15 minutes. During the conversion 10% per Kg methane is also produced as by product.
