Machine Converts Plastic Back Into Oil

Not everybody is fond of plastic due to environmental issues, but the smart folks over in Japan have managed to come up with a machine that is capable of turning plastic back into oil that can be used to create gasoline, diesel, or kerosene. The interesting thing is that the process is capable of turning 1kg of plastic back into 1l of oil, which isn’t a bad return, not to mention that it doesn’t even create any CO2 during the process. You can check out a video of this machine in action after the jump, and let’s see if it’ll become a long term solution for plastic recycling.
