Abstract

Gasification provides a promising alternative to thermally recycle waste plastics to produce a synthesis gas. The catalytic gasification process described here can process waste plastics to produce either a high yield, hydrogen-rich synthesis gas or high value, multi-walled carbon nano-tubes; a process that can be altered to produce the desired targeted end-product.
