In this research, we focused on the application of the attainable region method as an optimization technique that has never before been used in the field of waste management, specifically in optimising the pyrolysis oil fraction from plastic waste. Experimental results obtained from this investigation showed that the optimum yield of the oil fraction from the Attainable Region (A.R) plot was found to be 95%, using a pyrolysis temperature of 450°C and after a residence time of 2 hrs. Within the condi-tions of experimental investigation, it was also determined that the optimum conversion attainable is 70% and this was achieved using a pyrolysis temperature of 450°C and a residence time of 2 hrs.
