Default Make Oil From Plastic - And Fuel

We all know it takes a lot of oil to make plastic. That's all plastic is! So why not reverse the process on our own and simply make fuel from it. It's not that hard and "they" want us to think that it is impossible or dangerous. I'm looking forward to it. Watch this video about how a Japanese man makes oil from plastic. Convert Plastic to Oil video.

We don't get an explanation of how his machine works but I can't imaging that it's super complicated. And yes it might take maybe 10-15% of the energy made just to convert plastic to oil but how is this not worth our time or even an investment?

Here is a CNN broadcast of a group (Envion Inc.) in the good'ol US who has a large machine that includes a "reactor" of some sort that separates the oil and plastic. We need many more of these machines to start taking the plastic burden off of our landfills. The representative says they have dozens of orders for these mini processing plants. And I believe him. Definitely a step in the right direction. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNcht2x4m8g
