The aim of this research was to study the pyrolysis oil production from municipal plastic waste in INDIA. A pyrolysis experiment is done on the municipal LDPE plastic waste of 150 grams. A series of tests were carried out at a temperature range of 300- 350 0C with all other parameters being same. Under pyrolysis conditions plastic waste was decomposed into three types: producer gas, oil and solid residue. The obtained result shows that the properties of the pyrolysis oil are closely similar to that of Liquid fuel. hence it can be used as alternative fuel which friendly to the environment.
