Can you make oil from plastic? How do we turn waste plastic into oil?
We all know that plastic is made from crude oil, then can we lookout for a feasible and environmentally friendly recycling method to make oil from plastic? The answer is Yes. The pyrolysis technology can make pyrolysis fuel oil from plastic waste, and the distillation technology can further refine plastic fuel oil into diesel oil.

Let’s see the details of the recycling process to turn waste plastic into oil:
1. Turn waste plastic into pyrolysis fuel oil
The plastic pyrolysis oil is a kind of heavy fuel oil that can be used as a good industrial heating fuel. To turn waste plastic into pyrolysis fuel oil, we need to feed the waste plastic to pyrolysis machine reactor and then heat the reactor. When the temperature rises to about 120 degrees, the oil gas will be generated. Then the oil gas will enter the condensers cooling into liquid plastic pyrolysis oil.
Besides the plastic pyrolysis oil, you can also get carbon black and syn-gas. Different types of waste plastics have different oil yields. Please take the following date for reference.

2. Further refine the plastic pyrolysis oil to Diesel
If you have higher requirements for obtained plastic oil, then you can further refine the plastic pyrolysis oil into diesel with DOING waste oil distillation machine.
The process to refine plastic pyrolysis oil is as follows: first pump the plastic pyrolysis oil into the distillation reactor, heat the conduction oil heating system and the fuel heating system to make the plastic pyrolysis oil boil and gasify. Let the oil gas pass through the catalytic tower with double-layer structure to remove gum and wax. Then the purified oil gas enters the condensing system to liquefy into diesel oil and enter the temporary storage tank. And you can further decolorize and refine the diesel oil into brighter color diesel oil.

These processes of making oil from waste plastic are proving to deliver significant energy and environmental benefits. Turning waste plastics into oil can not only alleviate the pollution of waste plastics, but also alleviate the shortage of crude oil resources. By investing in related plastic to oil recycling businesses, one can obtain considerable profits.
