Converting Plastic into Gasoline, Diesel, Kerosene or Gas

An idea that is way past due...

The perils of plastic are nothing new to most of us. A lesser-known fact,
however, is that plastic has a higher energy value than just about any other
type of waste. To harness this energy while addressing the waste problem,
Japanese company Blest has created a machine that converts several types of
plastic into oil.

Rather than burning the plastic using flame, which generates CO2, the
machine uses a temperature-controlled electric heater to convert plastic
into crude gas, which can then be used to power gas-based household
appliances like stoves, boilers and generators or, if refined, can even be
pumped into a car or motorcycle. Small yet highly efficient, the machine
produces nearly one liter of oil -- gasoline, diesel or kerosene -- from every
kilogram of plastic, requiring only 1 kilowatt of electricity for the
conversion.

Though the machine currently processes only plastic class 2, 3 and 4
(polyethylene, polystyrene and polypropylene) and not class 1 (PET bottles),
it still offers a remarkable solution to a serious problem and has many
potential applications. Blest CEO Akinori Ito says there currently over 60
machines installed at farms, fisheries and small factories in Japan as well
as a handful abroad. They can be used for everything from converting trash
left behind by tourists into oil to power tour busses and boats to powering
restaurant kitchen stoves with plastic from food packaging.

Lastly, people from around the world are anxious to know if and where they
can purchase a machine. Though the company still mainly produces larger,
industrial-use machines, Blest Co. will be more than happy to hear from you.
