According to a Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC) report, India’s fuel consumption showed the fastest growth in about a decade. That month diesel consumption was pegged at 5.89 million tonnes (growth of 20.1 percent) and petrol consumption was estimated to be 1.9 million tonnes (growth of 25.4 percent). In January 2016, PPAC reported that India’s total fuel demand rose by about 12.7 percent to 15.71 million tonnes. India has now already overtaken Japan to become the third-largest oil consumer in the world. Petrol seems to be at the centre of this burgeoning rise in demand for fuel. In February alone the country has recorded a consumption of 1.82 million tonnes of petrol ( the annual hike of 11.4 percent).
Hyderabad engineer Satish Kumar is producing synthetic fuels using plastic waste which cannot be recycled again. Satish Kumar said About 500 kg of non-recyclable plastic can produce 400 litres of fuel. A three-step reverse engineering process is used where the plastic is indirectly heated in vacuum conditions, depolymerised, gasified and condensed which results in three synthetic fuels — diesel, aviation fuel and petrol. The process is called plastic pyrolysis which produces these combustible fluids that resemble petrol but are not exactly the same.It’s a simple process which requires no water and doesn’t release waste water. Neither does it pollute the air as the process happens in the vacuum.
According to Kumar, only three steps reverse engineering process is used. Kumar said that he started this unit in 2016 and has cleared 50 tonnes of plastic. The plastic used for this process is collected by different NGO’s. The fuel he produces is sold at 50-40 rupees per litre to local industries, including a bakery that uses it for broiler purpose.
