De-Centralised plastic pyrolysis

Posted On:2018-10-26 16:07:18


Due to minor proportion of plastic waste in the vegetable market waste of Virudhunagar, our objective is to make a sustainable business model for plastic waste segregated. From the study, we were able to find the actual costs for segregation, transportation & financial feasibility of the De-Centralised plastic pyrolysis approach.
