Pyrolysis of plastic waste is a new and mostly unimplemented technology. This research provides an analysis of the current technology and an analysis of which parts of this technology are mature and profitable enough to be considered to be implemented. Pyrolysis of mixed plastic waste is possible but unlikely to be profitable. Pyrolysis of most pure plastic waste flows can be profitable but more research is needed and other recycling methods are most likely more suitable. Pyrolysis of Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) has a high potential to be profitable and the technology is mature enough to be implemented.
