Ecological fuel made from polymer waste for diesel engines

The topicality of the problem related to the use of synthetic polymer fuels to power compression-ignition engines results from two interrelated issues: recycling of municipal waste and decreasing oil resources. The processing of polymer plastic waste into liquid fuels is only one of a series of tasks that can be defined as technological issues related to strictly defined municipal waste recycling processes. The second task is to determine the possibility of using recycled liquid fuels to power internal combustion engines. It should be emphasized that the use of a mixture of petroleum fuels with biocomponents in diesel engines was preceded by a large number of scientific studies and experiments, which in turn led to the relevant legal acts regulating the operating conditions of these mixtures. The analysis of the state of knowledge regarding the use of liquid fuels from the processing of polymer waste in wet-ignition engines indicates the lack of a detailed analysis of the phenomena occurring in individual processes of supplying fuel to the combustion chamber and obtaining the best engine operating parameters in technical terms. The aim of the article is to analyses the possibility of using synthetic polymer fuels to power diesel engines.
