Technologies Energy like fossil energy belong to renewable energy are growing. one of the example is to recycle of waste plastic as fuel .Some types of waste that we often see are plastic bottles such as plastic cups, plastic bottle caps, toys and margarine etc., which is one type of PP Polypropylene waste. Each unit of heavy plastic can produce 70 percent oil, 16percent gas, 6 percent carbon solid and 8 percent water. And for PP type plastic Polypropylene has melting point of 70celcius degree until 80celcius degree [5][11][12]. The calorific value of pure Polypropylene Liquid Plastics BBPP is 25.97 KJ per gram. Proving that plastic waste has a high enough heat content it can be developed to become one of the alternative sources of energy that uses renewable natural materials renewable resources, although in previous studies the calorific value obtained was still below the standard reference fuel value of 48 KJ per gram. So it still cannot be used on motor vehicles. This study aims to increase the calorific value of liquid polypropylene fuel from the results of Pyrolysis so that the calorific value is closer to the standard by using the distillation process and absorption method or purification process of purifying the Polypropylene liquid fuel. Liquid fuel Polypropylene is introduced into the Absorption Distillation reactor and evaporated using a heater to a temperature near 70celcius degree until 90celcius degree. and subsequently condensed by using a pure water medium with a temperature of 20celcius degree until 25 Celsius degree. The calorific value resulting from the absorption distillation is 44.35 KJ per gram. The results are close to the standard premium fuel calorific value.
