Abstract:Catalytic dissociation reaction of waste plastics and news paper was studied for oil production. SEM analysis were performed to find out crystal structure of prepared catalysts. GC-MAS analysis was also performed to find out product distribution by various noble metal supported zeolite catalysts. Dissociation ratio was calculated by following equation. Dissociation ratio equals gaseous and liquid products divided input amount of waste plastics. Pt-zeolite catalyst had a highest yield of petroleum oil such as C5 - C11 for waste plastics dissociation reaction over 370℃. Dissociation conversions of mixed waste plastics and news paper were above 75 percentages over 370℃ on Pt-zeolite catalyst.
