Abstract

The thermal degradation of real municipal waste plastic (MWP) obtained from Sapporo, Japan and model mixed plastics was carried out at 430°C in atmospheric pressure by batch operation. The chlorinated hydrocarbons found in PE/PP/PS/PVC [poly(ethylene)/poly(propylene)/poly(styrene)/poly(vinyl chloride)] degradation liquid products were also observed in PE/PP/PS/PVC/PET (poly(ethylene terephalate)) and MWP degradation liquid products. The presence of PET in MWP produced the additional chlorinated hydrocarbons, which are similar to the chlorinated hydrocarbons observed during the PE/PP/PS/PVC/PET degradation liquid products. In addition, the presence of PET facilitated the formation of more organic chlorine content in liquid products and drastic decrease in the formation of inorganic chlorine content.
