ABSTRACT

Chemical recycling has been recognized as an ideal approach and could significantly reduce the net cost of disposal. The catalytic degradation of series of pure polymers and two samples of waste plastics over several catalysts was investigated using a designed fluidized bed reactor. Product distributions are discussed in terms of the feedstocks, catalyst structures and preliminary process models are evaluated.
