This report presented a brief overview of (mixed) plastic-to-fuel plants with relatively large scales (usually > 10 t/d) in recent years. In around ten years since 2009, nearly twenty plastic-to-fuel plants have been completed and put into production, or are under construction, or planned. These plants with a maximum capacity of around 1500 t/d (reported) are mainly distributed in Europe and the US. While the scale of mainstream plastic-to-fuel plants is about 10-150 t/d with a oil yield of around 4.5-5 barrel/t at present.
