Abstract  

HZSM-5 zeolite was screened as catalyst for high density polyethylene degradation at 450‡C, under nitrogen static atmosphere. Two different samples were studied in this condition: HDPE alone and mixed with HZSM-5. The reactor was connected on line to an HP 5890-II gas Chromatograph. Sample degradation was investigated using a Perkin-Elmer Delta 7 Thermobalance, from room temperature to 800‡C, with heating rates of 5.0, 10.0 and 20.0‡C min−1. From TG curves, the activation energies, calculated using an integral kinetic method, decreased 60.6% in the presence of the zeolite.

Abstract  

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) was cracked over HZSM-5 and HY zeolites and the reaction was followed using simultaneous thermogravimetry (TG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and was compared with the degradation of the same material in the absence of an added catalyst. The products obtained in the degradation reaction were analyzed by gas chromatography. The simultaneous use of the signals from the TG and DSC allowed an accurate description of the thermal and catalytic degradation of the polymer by application of a novel kinetic model that correlates the two signals that are measured. The kinetic parameters were estimated by fitting this model to the experimental data obtained by TG and DSC. For both zeolites, the polymer degradation takes place at lower temperatures when compared with pure thermal degradation. It was also observed that the two zeolites have a distinct influence on the product distribution.

Abstract

A study of the catalytic degradation of EVA copolymers under air atmosphere has been carried out using thermogravimety (TG). Three commercial EVA copolymers and five zeolites and related materials catalysts have been selected. The degradation process in air atmosphere involves four main decomposition steps (as observed in TG), being more complex than the corresponding process in inert atmosphere. The presence of MCM-41, HY and H-β does not seem to noticeably affect to the overall degradation temperature, despite the temperature of maximum reaction rate for the second decomposition step being slightly displaced towards lower temperatures. Contrarily, the presence of HZSM-5 and HUSY zeolites seems to displace the main stage of the oxidative degradation process towards higher temperatures. Moreover, the relative importance of the second and third decomposition step is different depending on the amount and the nature of the zeolite mixed with the EVA sample. The results obtained show that the presence of the catalyst also enhances the formation of the carbonous residue.
