A new technology that converts plastic waste to fuel has impressed sections of the Indian government but extensive support will be needed for it to be commercialised.
The technology, developed by Unique Plastic Waste Management & Research, allows fuel to be generated from plastic waste by rapid de-polymerisation of carbon chain using proprietary catalysts. More details are available here.
It is now being implemented on a small scale and I suspect more research will be needed before tonnes of plastic waste can be converted into fuel to drive our cars.
But given the amount of plastic waste being generated in India it is certainly a technology worth pursuing.
