Indian entrepreneurs develop small-scale technology to revert plastics to fuel

April 17, 2017 |

In India, an entrepreneurial pair have developed machines that return plastic to polyfuel that is later used for cooking, in generators and in tractors and is cheaper than fossil fuel. The methane, butane, and propane emitted during the production process is captured, cleaned and used to power the machines themselves. One machine processes 220 pounds at a time, producing 12 to 17 gallons of fuel, while the other processes 2,645 pounds at a go. Another byproduct from the process is mixed with bitumen to tarmac roads.
