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.
