Converting Polyethylene Waste into Liquid Fuel
Alternative energy. Those two words are bandied about by politicians, environmental advocates and many executives. What if you could have an alternative energy source from something that most people use but don’t seem to know what to do with? Like plastic bags? Grocery stores, department stores – you name it and they have plastic bags. Two industrious researchers in India think they have an answer – take those plastic bags and turn them into liquid fuel. They’re hoping their technology will work on any low-density polyethylene, but it would be a boon to have plastic bags repurposed into something helpful instead of ending up in a landfill.
