this machine converts plastic garbage back into oil

typically made from petroleum it estimated that of the worlds annual oil production used to produce and manufacture plastic that more than the oil consumed by the entire african continent if we burn the plastic we generate toxins and a large amount of co if we convert it into oil we save co and at the same time increase peoples awareness about the value of plastic garbage akinori ito ceo of blest the wonderful invention of plastics spawned a huge problem that we struggling to solve with peak oil looming things set to change but we find ourselves on top of an oil and plastic mountain and the only way forward down blests conversion technology very safe because it uses a temperature controlling electric heater rather than flame the machines able to process polyethylene polystyrene and polypropylene numbers but not pet bottles number the result a crude gas that fuel things like generators or stoves and when refined even be pumped into a car a boat or motorbike one kilogram of plastic produces almost one liter of oil to convert that amount takes about kilowatt of electricity which approximately ¥ or cents worth due to exceptional circumstances we republishing the present story about an exceptional innovation over a year after it originally published this video brief about the invention of a plastic to oil converting machine recently got a viral boost and exceeded views on if we burn the plastic we generate toxins and a large amount of co if we convert it into oil we save co and at the same time increase peoples awareness about the value of plastic garbage says akinori ito ceo of blest so while many solutions like this not without hiccups or detractors they a step forward in coming to terms with our oil and plastics dependence and help raise awareness of the carbon footprint of its production and use somehow we all know that plastics a habit we to kick but that seem to make it any easier thankfully there those who fully appreciate that plastic a higher energy value than anything else commonly found in the waste stream a japanese company called blest created a small very safe and easy to use machine that convert several types of plastic back into oil in such remote places the machine also serves as a practical solution to the plastic problem much of it left behind by tourists the oil produced used for tour buses or boats ito says plastic to oil fantastic if we to use only the worlds plastic waste rather than oil from oil fields co emissions be slashed dramatically he says many think that this type of recycling not a solution but that instead the world be seriously focused on the first rwhich reduce we shun single use plastic such as your average pet bottle or disposable container altogether they argue the worlds oil resources diminishing technology like this enable our denial of that fact or it a hopeful and constructive step in the right direction ((27 AUG 2010))
