Abstract

The application of bio-oil is possible by increasing quality of bio-oil and adds its durability. Pyrolysis of biomass along with some proportions of plastic waste increases the quality of bio-oil and is termed fuel-oil. On the basis of characterization of Mixed plastic wastes (HDBE; PP; LDBE) and lignocellulosic biomass (sawdust, red gram stalk, Melia dubia, and coconut husk) are arrived as 25:75; 50:50: 75:25:100:0 to recover fuel oil at a varied temperature range from 400 to 550°C with the increment of 50°C in a laboratory set up. The solid residue (char), liquid material(fuel-oil), and gas (pyro-gas) are the products of the pyrolysis process. The maximum fuel oil is recovered with a ratio of 75 % mixed plastic waste and 25 % biomass. FT-IR analysis confirms the presence of alkanes, alkanes and aromatic hydrocarbons in the obtained fuel-oil.
