Catalytic Hydroconversion of Polypropylene-Based Plastic Waste to Lubricant Base-Oils
Beneficial use for damaging plastic waste and are consistent in quality to existing crude oil-based lubricants
This approach uses polypropylene-based plastics as a feedstock for lubricant base-oils as a more sustainable alternative to conventional fossil fuel-based lubricants. Only 1% of polypropylene-based plastics are recycled, with the rest contributing towards the growing plastic pollution problem. This procedure puts plastic waste to use as feedstock for lubricants. These polypropylene-based lubricants provide a beneficial use for damaging plastic waste and are consistent in quality to existing crude oil-based lubricants.
- These polypropylene- based lubricants have a higher viscosity index and a higher oxidation temperature than Group III base oils derived from crude oil.
- These lubricants also have a comparable pour point temperature to Group III base oils.
- Polypropylene-based lubricants find
