Juniza Saad: Huazhong University of Science & Technology, China


Juniza Saad recently visited Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China for two months from the 19th September to 24th November 2015. The research involved two months of experiments using thermo-gravimetric analyser (TGA) for kinetic analysis of pyrolysis of waste plastic in three different atmospheres; 100% of N2, 100% of CO2 and ratio of N2/CO2. In addition to this, the real-time analysis of the gaseous products released during thermal analysis was investigated. Initially, the proposed method to study the gases evaluation is using the TGA machine connected to the infra-red spectrometer (FTir).
