ALMEIDA, Débora  e  MARQUES, Maria de Fátima. Thermal and catalytic pyrolysis of plastic waste. Polímeros [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.1, pp.44-51.  Epub 04-Mar-2016. ISSN 1678-5169.

The amount of plastic waste is growing every year and with that comes an environmental concern regarding this problem. Pyrolysis as a tertiary recycling process is presented as a solution. Pyrolysis can be thermal or catalytical and can be performed under different experimental conditions. These conditions affect the type and amount of product obtained. With the pyrolysis process, products can be obtained with high added value, such as fuel oils and feedstock for new products. Zeolites can be used as catalysts in catalytic pyrolysis and influence the final products obtained.

Palavras-chave : catalytic pyrolysis; fuel oils; thermal pyrolysis; zeolites.
