Plastic waste recycling still remains a major challenge in environmental protection despite available different routes such as emerging mechanical, chemical, and energy recycling. Recently, the addition of wastes plastics as minor components of coal blends for metallurgical coke manufacturing has been proposed. This thesis explores the modification of the thermoplastic properties of coal in order to assess the possibility of blending plastic wastes with coal for the production of metallurgical coke and the' usefulness of the by products. A bitumininous coal K6 was used as a base component of blends with different plastic products such as polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS), poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET), flexible polyurethane (FPU), and car shredder fluff (CSF).
