Soon, you will be able to run your car on the fuel produced by converting waste plastic.

India’s GAIL is pursuing a project on “conversion of waste plastic to petrol, diesel/LPG” for which lab-scale studies and bench-scale studies have been carried out, informed Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

GAIL in collaboration with Indian Institute of Petroleum (IIP), Dehradun has developed the catalyst and a two-stage process for conversion of waste plastics to diesel, petrol, LPG and Aromatics.

The Basic Design and Engineering Package was prepared in 2013-14 for setting up of pilot plant. However, options for setting up of the pilot plant are presently being explored.

The economics of cost saving shall be known only after the process conditions are established in the pilot plant, Pradhan said.
