Abstract

Liquid fuels from polypropylene plastic waste and co-reactants biodiesel from Waste Cooking Oil have been successfully performed by catalytic cracking method. The catalyst used is Al-MCM-41: Ceramics with ratio 7: 3. The catalyst was characterized by XRD, SEM, Pyridine-FTIR, N 2-Adsorption-Desorption, and the product of catalytic cracking were investigated by GC-MS. The Liquid fuels obtained was mixed with commercial fuels and MTBE with ratio (10: 87.5: 2.5). The results showed liquid fuels have the largest percentage of gasoline (C 7-C 12) are 93.92 fraction produced. The performance of liquid fuels is enhanced with the additive MTBE investigated by generator set engine with gasoline-based fuel. The liquid fuel blends on the CB50 feedstock variation has the highest percentage of thermal efficiency of 27.42%, with a density value of 722.55 Kg/m 3, a flash point of-5.9 C, a viscosity of 0.238 cst, and a …
