The growing human population is increasing the consumption of fuels day by day in order to fulfill the requirement of human activities. This demand is also resulted in hiking the fuel prices. Also, the electric vehicles have not so far able to impress the market since their prices are comparatively higher than their counterparts that is motor fuel vehicles and hence isn't the first choice for people. Also, the rapid growing human population has introduced other problems like pollution and waste produced by humans from different activities like construction, household, industrial, etc. One of the most common waste produced in a large quantity is plastic which is non biodegradable. Existing way to deal with the plastic is to recycle it which itself produces toxic wastes. As an alternative pyrolysis method can be applied by treating the solid plastic wastage thermally which will break the long polymeric chain structure of the plastic. This will result in the conversion of plastic into hydrocarbon fuels like jet fuel, kerosene, gasoline, auto-gas and other inflammable products which can be used in aerospace industries, general transportation sector, thermal power plants and other industrial sectors. Different types of fuels with different properties can be obtained from different grades of plastics.
