Waste plastics can be converted into energy by using proper conversion technologies. The usage of plastic bags has considerably increased and waste plastics are dumped into the ground. Plastics obstruct the air and water to go into the earth, thus causing serious damge to soil and the environment. Plastic wastes are burnt to generate thermal energy, but this will produce lot of toxic gases which are very harmful to human beings. The plastic waste is typically of the following types:

1) Plastic tanks, parts of piping and insulation of cables 2) Packaging used for cleaning products and cosmetics 3) Disposable sacks and shopping bags.

Polymer Energy system uses catalytic pyrolysis to efficiently convert plastics (primarily polyolefins) into crude oil. They offer an economical and environmentally responsible method of recycling and disposal of plastic waste.
