Turning plastic waste into fuel


“Of course, everyone is concerned about plastic waste, but the reality is, they also need to use plastic,” says Professor Maschmeyer from the University of Sydney's School of Chemistry.

“Our recycling method reconciles those two ideas.”Professor Maschmeyer created a chemical process where plastic waste can be turned into fuel, or used to make new plastic again, and again. It can also handle any kind of plastic, including the contaminated plastic that China recently stopped importing as it moves away from being the world’s largest waste recycler.”
