Smile Man invents Machine that converts Trash plastic back into oil

This is new to me, I have no idea if it's legit but the idea is brilliant IMO.

If this has been posted before then I am sorry I am not on here much anymore.

I actually posted it to my Facebook. I thought it was awesome (but yet again, I went to college for physics so all my friends are either engineers or musicians lol)

Re: Man invents Machine that converts Trash plastic back into oil

Cool, cheers for replying, it would be good to hear from someone who has seen or heard of this machine and can verify that is in fact real and not total BS. I mean he is in an African country demoing it and other country by the looks of things, but that counts for nothing at the end of the day.

Anyone know any more info on this machine?

He wants to recycle plastic into oil instead of letting it be smelted (highly toxic) or decomposing. Similar to the biodiesel movement.

Great idea. I've always wondered why our society can develop things like the "evo 3d" and other cool things but we can't seem to figure out how to make a vehicle move from point a to point b in a cost effective way, and mass produce it! Nuts.

A few years ago I read a paper that said the majority of the worlds alternative energy patents are actually held by traditional energy companies.

When oil becomes truly "non-cost effective" then we'll see a shift in how vehicles are powered. At the moment, petrol is hugely cost effective, especially for those people that own the oil

Re: Man invents Machine that converts Trash plastic back into oil

Sure, why kill the goose that laid the golden egg?
If this is legit it's very cool. I've tought for a long time now that we should "mine" lanfills for reusable materials. How many polystyrene water bottles are there buried in the world? Get some guys a hard suit that keeps the funk and stench outside and lets pick gold out of the garbage.
