The use of plastic has become an important and inseparable part of people's daily lives, but rapid population growth and increasing human activities produce significant amounts of plastic waste. This research aims to reduce pollution caused by plastic waste, utilize plastic waste as a source of renewable energy in the form of Fuel Oil (BBM), and analyze the ratio of waste types to the quantity of fuel produced. In this research, data was collected from various commonly found waste, such as plastic bag waste, plastic bottle waste and styrofoam waste. Then, to produce fuel, a pyrolysis process is carried out with a waste mass of 1:1:1. Based on the results obtained, plastic bottle waste produces a product in the form of 0.019kg/30 ml kerosene. Furthermore, plastic bag waste produces 0.05kg/50 ml kerosene products, as well as 2.5 ml petrol oil. And styrofoam waste produces products similar to plastic bag waste, namely kerosene 0.171kg/98 ml, and petrol oil 2.5 ml. Based on the data obtained, Styrofoam waste produces more kerosene products compared to plastic bag and plastic bottle waste. With this research, we hope that society can maximize plastic waste into economic income and reduce environmental pollution caused by plastic waste.
