Abstract

This article presents a mini-review of the literature on the laboratory scale pyrolysis of selected plastic waste. Among the various types of polymer materials polyolefins (PE and PP), as well as polystyrene (PS), polyoxymethylene (POM), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), were selected. The paper highlights valuable compounds and chemical raw materials can be obtained by pyrolyzing the waste polymers.
