A Process Systems Engineering Approach for the Design of Plastics Recycling Systems

Fani Boukouvala, Ph.D., Associate Professor, School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Tech, Georgia Tech

Abstract: We will present a new approach for chemical conversion of waste plastics to their original raw materials. We start with detailed process modeling of a chemical reactor validated by experimental data, and proceed with simulation of an entire pilot scale facility. We conclude with technoeconomic analysis and assessment of the impact of this process on the plastics supply chain factoring cost and emissions metrics.
