The Copyrolysis of Block Polypropylene with Particle Board and Medium Density Fiber
Copyrolysis of two waste wood samples with block polypropylene were investigated for the reaction characteristics and properties of the pyrolytic oil. The thermal decomposition of the mixture led to an increase in the temperature range for the decomposition of polypropylene, which implied an interaction in the mixture. New tar compounds were also identified from the copyrolysis using pyrolysis gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. The oil produced from the mixtures in a batch type reactor had an increase in the mass yield, with higher C and H, and lower moisture contents.
