Project Name: Plastomite
Project Theme: Industry
Objective/Aim: TQ control the soil pollution arising due to plastic waste.
Scientific Principle: A part of fractional distillation of petroleum product plastic which converts plastic (waste) into grease, wax and a mixture of hydro carbons. Material used: Steel Container (3.5l), Angithi, plastic waste, pipe, etc.
1. A 3-5 ltr. steel container with 3 openings to feed the plastic and for getting products is to be set up as shown in the file.
2. After feeding the plastic in container, heated with the help of an Angithi, products will be obtained according the different temperature and height of openings (delivery Pipes).
3. The opening at the lid of container delivers fumes of hydrocarbons which are further condensed and get collected as a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons. And from other two openings products like wax and grease are to be obtained.
Applications in different domains of life:
1. Reduce the plastic waste, hence reduced the soil pollution.
2. Employment generation.
Further scope of the exhibit/Project:
Large plants of plastomites can be implemented on the level of municipal Committies.
