Team Plastic Power is made up of three Chemical Engineering students from Calvin CollegeMeet Us
The goal of our project is to develop a process to convert waste plastic, otherwise destined for landfills, into diesel fuel. This design is based around a reactor where the polymers present in the waste plastic are thermally degraded into smaller molecules through pyrolysis. This reaction produces a gas, an oil, and a char product. The reactor conditions will be optimized to maximize production of the oil product which will be processed further into diesel fuel.
Here you will find all documents associated with our team and our project.
Calvin College is a Christian college located in Grand Rapids MI
The Engineering Senior Design class at Calvin College actively engages students in a year long design course.
