Plastic2Oil Converts Waste Plastic to Fuel

Plastic2Oil Converts Waste Plastic to Fuel

Unlike existing plastic-to-oil operations, JBI accepts all trash plastic, achieving a rate of conversion into clean fuel of almost 90 percent, while requiring minimal external energy (reactor is heated with approximately 8 percent off-gas captured and compressed). All waste plastic is fed through a shredder and a granulator and then heated in a process chamber, after which it proceeds into the main reactor. JBI reports the system can handle up to 1,800 pounds (816.5 kg) at a time – good news about materials that traditionally ended up at a landfill.
