Plastic waste burns to give cooking gas !!!
“As much as 750 ml of gas can be produced from a mere four grams of plastic waste using the technology (750 litre from 4 kg),” said Dr. Lisa. Apart from the gas, other costly chemicals including the plasticizers employed to make plastic more pliable, can also be extracted during the process, she said.
Unlike in the existing recycling system, no plastic item is rejected in the new method. “The trials have been successful in disintegrating all kinds of plastics including polythene, bottles, bags, tyres, charring plastics such as toffee covers and thermocol,” said Dr. Lisa. thehindu.com/news/cities/kozhikode/plas ... 683338.ece
