Abstract

In the last century mankind witnessed many innovations and one of them is the emerging of plastic materials in different fields. Due to light in weight and good impact and thermal resistance, these plastics are found to be very useful in manufacturing of certain products as well as household. Use of these materials also helped in boosting the economy of industries which replaced plastic materials with the metallic materials in certain processes. But there is the great drawback associated with these commodities. The most significant is the environmental problem i.e. plastic material is a great source of adding pollution. The world’s annual consumption of plastic is increased tremendously from early 1950’s to till now. Therefore the plastic waste which is increasing day by day should be recycled. Plastic waste recycling provides the opportunity to collect and dispose of plastic waste in the most environmental friendly way and it can be converted into the energy resource. The major motivation of this research is to study the feasibility of producing energy through municipal waste plastic in Lahore city, Pakistan. A detailed economic analysis is carried out which shows the plastic is the cheaper resource of producing energy and helps in reducing the demand and supply gap of energy in Pakistan in future.
