Abstract

The problem in plastics world are its nondegradable natural properties so the waste and its product has ultimately been accumulating in recent years. Fractions of plastics may degrade in reuse and recycle programs, but the quantity of remaining plastics in environment (unusable) has increased. Incineration of these plastics seems to be a good solution. However, the emission of combustion and energy auxiliary required are obstacles in the incineration process. An unusable plastic waste with high energy such as polypropylene, polyvinylchloride, and polyethylene are subjected. These materials as main fuel used to design low emission incinerator in this study. Average composition, heat, and emission were analyzed for criteria result. The chamber dimension for prototype incinerators in 0.4 x 0.3 x 0.4 m3 show good performance for 2 kg unusable plastics combustion every 10 minutes and air excess was about 100 %. Plastic combustion test obtained low emissions with F/A above 1.5, and burning temperature above 700 oC. Twelve repetition tests for this design showed the maximum temperature achieved was 901 oC, and average was 850 oC after stable burning (is about 16 minutes time needed).
