    Thats amazing,see the tech is out there,there is so much that can be done to help our planet heal,but the question remain why dont the world govt's endorse this type of technology that should be mandatory,we could keep recycling plastic into fuel forever,although in my opinion we are better off getting rid of oil altogether,but the guy who invented this is a genius and cares about what is being done to the planet,great find tho tks for sharing.

    Hi All Avalonians, Visitors,

    Last night, I had the opportunity to look at a great video on how to transformed plastic to oil. The author of the invention is Akinori Ito of the Blest Corporation in Japan.

    http://www.flixxy.com/convert-plastic-to-oil.htm

    I don't know how it is cost effective, time will tell!

    All my blessings.

    You can find their website here http://blest.co.jp/

    The site is in Japanese, however you can click on an English catalog and there's a bit of info on their machines.

    This is not the only one. Do a Youtube search and you'll find there are a large number of these being built by commercial businesses that are vying to create a new recycling industry.

    In an efficient and safe effort to save us from the ill-effects of plastic waste, Akinori Ito has developed a machine which converts plastic back into oil.

    Yeah i came across this months ago the guy is a genius,but this is just another piece of tech/gadget that is not going to be used in a large scale the way it should,simply bcs the govts of the world dont give a crap about it,if that started being used in a large scale would be amazing, imagine cleaning all the plastic thats laying around filling dumps harming the environment and converting it right back to oil,we would have oil for a verylong time,but the problem is we gotta get out of oil dependency at some point down the road tho.

    Hello All!

    There is a very good description how to built one yourself over at the energetic forum
    the process itself is actually quite easy, you basically split long carbon-hydrogen-chains in smaller part via the right temp and voilá you´ve got diesel.

    lotsa love,

    Hi,

    Do you know of any Australian manufacturers or distributors for this kit or similar? Any idea of cost?

    I know that it is a far cry from full disclosure but every step along the way helps in the meantime

    Cheers, Steven

    He retrofitted the flux capacitor with a "Mr. Fusion" and it had a yamaha symbol on it!

    I don't know of anyone who is commercially manufacturing this right now. I've seen and heard of a bunch of "inventors" and a bunch of companies have thrown R&D money into it with the intent of building a device for themselves. The best bet to get one would probably be to find a patent that works and figure out how to (or pay someone else) to build it. Needless to say, that approach could be obscenely expensive unless one is a hardware genius with a full lab and tons of spare time or backing investors.

    Very cool. I'm going to post this on some of my biodiesel forums. I know a bunch of people who make their own fuel sources for diesel engines, and many are very technically skilled. This could be a fun project.

    Cool! Let's make all the plastic back into oil, and re-inject it back down in the Earth to act as a lubricant for shifting continental plates.

    Then, switch to zero-point energy!

    OK, maybe kidding about that first part.

    This is cool!

    And at least it will stop all of the people saying that the plastic bottles will never biodegrade and they will outlive the Earth. That story looks BS. If this could be done on even a small scale such as people spending $1000 and home-brewing their own fuel, it could make a big dent in a lot of official paradigms. And those plastic cans will be worth a lot more than just a few cents for recycling.

    We could even switch our Strategic Petroleum Reserves to all of these mountains of plastic that aren't going anywhere.
