About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Waste generation


"The container is air tight in design, and has a bigger inner volume to collect the plastic materials. The container has an outlet through which gases escapes from the container. These gases are allowed to pass through various filtering stages including a water filter and an electronic filter. At each filtering stage the gas leaves back certain amount of residue. The residue left back at each filtering stage is different in its chemical and physical nature. In the first stage of filter a tar like viscous liquid is extracted. Then the gas oil mixture is allowed to pass through a water filter where the oil is extracted out. Then the gas is passes through a high pressure steam container where the gas is almost cleaned from suspending impurities. The last stage is an electronic filtering chamber where the gas is passed through an electric spark produced by an electronic circuit. This filtering stage burns of all the toxic carbon content in the gas. Finally them gas is let out of the chamber and can be connected to a regulated burner to be used as COOKING GAS. The tar like extract at the first stage can be used as a substitute of tar or wax based products like shoe polish. The oil extract can be further filtered and can be used as a substitute for kerosene or diesel. The gaseous extract at the end can be liquefied at high pressure and can be used as Cooking Gas. The volume of burned plastic left at the container after the process is just a fraction of its initial volume and can be easily managed out. Another important aspect of the gas produced while heating the plastic waste is that electricity can be produced by the gas obtained from the plastic container its advantage is that it doesnot require any external energy but uses the energy from the bio gasplants only."
