Abstract: In the present world due to urbanization and industrialization, huge amounts of plastic are generated every year. Hence the disposal methods and management of plastics like burning them in the open air cause hazardous problems in the atmosphere. Though there have been numerous attempts of technologies to repossess plastics, it primarily emits greenhouse gases and the usage of power for the entire recycling process is high rise. Plastic to fuel conversion is a promising technology that has the potential to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment and provide an alternative source of fuel. Hence the Pyrolysis technique is one of the nature-friendly attempts to convert plastic to inflammable gas. But this is a process that needs high energy for the anaerobic decomposition of plastic in the presence of the catalyst and at very high temperatures. To minimize the consumption of excess energy nature, renewable technologies are taken in to provide extreme temperature levels to enable pyrolysis. This technology is converting plastic waste into fossil fuel through decomposition.

Keywords: Urbanization, Hazardous, greenhouse gases, pyrolysis, anaerobic, Fossil fuel.
