Originally, plastic is made from petroleum or natural gas in a chemical process that combines smaller molecules into a large chainlike molecule, often with other substances added to give it particular qualities. Processes like gasification of granulated plastic and catalytic pyrolysis can be used to convert plastic, the long hydro-carbon chain back into smaller hydra-carbon chains of naphtha, diesel, heavy diesel, kerosene etc. These fuels can then be used anywhere from boiler fuel in power generation to use in automobiles. This paper aims to provide the best possible review of this much needed conversion with the hope of visiting lowered fuel prices in the near future by improvements in the design.
