Latest Invention: Machine that Turns Plastic Back Into Oil

Share

An inventor from a Japanese company called Blest, managed to create a machine able to transform plastic back into oil, thus proving hope that it is possible to reduce plastic waste that not only pollutes the ground but also forms huge islands in the oceans.

Akinori Ito has invented a machine that can be of different sizes, and which can be used at home and industrial plants.

Ito's latest invention can turn a kilogram of plastic waste into a liter of oil. Though such process uses 1 kilowatt of electricity, the machine does not emit carbon dioxide.

It is worth mentioning that instead of using flames, the machine makes use of a temperature controlling electric heater. It can process almost anything, including polyethylene, polystyrene and polypropylene. However, it is unable to process PET bottles, reports Akihabara News.

The oil obtained during the process can be then used to create gasoline, Diesel and Kerosene.

With all respect I think that the efforts of this amazing japanese inventor dont need to be diminished with commentaries of who make this invention first. This is a great contribution to humanity, and I admired the inventor's efforts to spoke and teach children of various nationalities about his creation. I'm also a teacher in Puerto Rico and It will be and honor for me and my students to get a demonstration of this technology in our classroom.

Dont be amazed! An inventor from the poverty stricken Sri Lanka has developed and set up a factory about 100 km from Colombo already.I think while the Japanese brother of ours should be commended for his efforts the credit for the invention should go to the Sri Lankan! For further details contact the Ministry of environment Sri Lanka or the The Hon Minister of Power and Energy.(The inventor uses waste Pet bottles and polythene)
