The conversion of plastics into fuel and lubricants is possible through processes such as pyrolysis and gasification.

These methods involve heating plastics to high temperatures in the absence of oxygen, which causes them to thermally decompose. During this process, plastics are broken down into gases, liquids and solid residues.

In the case of conversion to fuel, the gases produced can be used as fuel to generate thermal or electrical energy.

The resulting liquids, known as pyrolytic oils, can be refined and used as liquid fuels, however, it is important to note that the refining process can be costly and require additional technologies.

In terms of conversion to lubricants, pyrolytic oils can undergo further refining to obtain quality lubricants, which can be used in a variety of applications, such as automotive engines, industrial machinery and transport equipment.

It is important to note that converting plastics into fuel and lubricants is not a perfect solution to the plastic waste problem, although it can help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills, it is still preferable to reduce, reuse and recycle plastics in the first place.

In addition, there are challenges and concerns associated with the conversion of plastics into fuel and lubricants, these include the emission of gases and residues during the pyrolysis process, as well as the need for efficient and sustainable technologies to carry out the conversion.
