How much fuel oil you can get from 1 ton of waste plastic?...
（picture：How Much Fuel Oil You Can Get From One Ton of Waste Plastic? ）
When you start the plastic waste pyrolysis plant, you may be curious about the oil yield of the waste plastics. How much oil can I get from one ton of waste plastic? How much money I can get from this project?
Generally speaking, you can get about 500KG-750KG of pyrolysis oil from 1 ton of plastic waste. Different types of plastics have different oil yields. The oil yield of pure PE plastic can reach about 95%, the oil yield of PP or PS plastic is about 75%, the oil yield of ABS plastic is 40%, and the oil yield of household plastic waste is 30-50%, for leftovers of paper the oil yield is about 60%. In addition, the water content of the plastic will also affect the oil yield. The higher the water content of the plastic, the longer the pyrolysis time and the lower the oil yield. So the type and purity of raw material could affect the oil yield.
On the other hand, the cooling system's quality directly affects the oil yield. The oil gas produced by the pyrolysis plant is condensed by the cooling system. Huayin provides different configurations of condensers and dedusting systems. They could all meet the environmental requirements of different countries because they have larger heat exchange areas and larger oil-gas contact areas. The quality of the waste plastic pyrolysis plant and the operating specifications of the staff during the operation process could also affect the oil yield.
