Japanese Ingenuity – Save your plastic – Run your Car, Heat your House.

Man Invents machine to turn household WASTE plastic into oil, IN YOUR HOME !

And save 80% of CO2 Emissions compared to burning the rubbish.

When an invention like this is already up and working why don’t our governments have them installed everywhere….instead of taxing  us  on emissions?

Japanese Ingenuity — Save your plastic, bags, foam, bottles, wrappers ~~~ This is one of the most amazing break-through’s in Technology both in it’s potential impact, and its small scale.
Why aren’t we doing this now????  If you look around the web there are others doing this too, different qualities and scales, but this kit is neat enough for any one to have, or perhaps everyone to have..
I think we should all do what we can to save what we are destroying!  We shouldn’t be surprised at this at all, just a case of Japanese ingenuity and perseverance.

What is more important would be the marketing and very low cost to make it mandatory to have one of these in every home.
The sound is all in Japanese. Just read the subtitles and watch. What a great discovery!

The Technical term for this process is Thermal depolymerization – see Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Feedstocks and outputs with thermal depolymerization

Average TDP Feedstock Outputs
Feedstock Oils Gases Solids (mostly carbon based) Water (Steam)
Plastic bottles 70% 16% 6% 8%
Medical waste 65% 10% 5% 20%
Tires 44% 10% 42% 4%
Turkey offal 39% 6% 5% 50%
Sewage sludge 26% 9% 8% 57%
Paper (cellulose) 8% 48% 24% 20%

    This could be the breakthrough to solving the global plastic problem.
    Almost 90% of the marine debris found on Sydney’s beaches is plastic, mostly bottles, caps and straws.
    Australians buy 600 million litres of bottled water a year.
    We use 10 million plastic bags a day (that’s 3.9 billion plastic bags a year)!
    Like diamonds plastics are forever— every piece of plastic we have ever used is still on the planet today.

    FACT SHEET ABOUT PLASTIC IN OUR WATERWAYS

    Around 8 million items of litter enter the marine environment every day. An estimated 70% of marine litter ends up on the sea bed, 15% on beaches and the remaining floats to the surface.

    Around 7 billion tonnes of plastic litter enter the ocean every year.

    An estimated 80% of marine debris is from land based sources, 20% sea based. These sources fall into four major groups:
    o Tourism related – food/beverage packaging, etc.
    o Waste/stormwater – ex stormwater drains, sewer overflows, etc.
    o Fishing – lines, nets, etc.
    o Shop/boats – waste/garbage; deliberately or accidently dumped overboard.

    About 18% of litter, usually travelling through storm water systems ends up in local streams, rivers and waterways.

    It is estimated that three times as much rubbish is dumped into the world’s oceans annually as the weight of fish caught.

    Plastics make up about 60% of marine debris, with an estimated 100,000 marine mammals and turtles killed by plastic litter every year around the World.

    Entanglement and ingestion are the primary types of direct damage to wildlife caused by marine litter; it can smother sea beds and it is a source of toxic substances in the marine environment.

    Available information indicates at least 77 species of marine wildlife found in Australian waters and at least 267 marine species Worldwide are affected by entanglement in or ingestion of marine debris, including 86% of all sea turtle species, 44% of all seabird species and 43% of all marine mammal species.

    Seals and sea lions are particularly affected by derelict fishing gear, nets and six pack rings, probably due to their inquisitive nature. An estimated 58% of seal and sea lion species are known to have been affected by entanglement including the Hawaiian monk seal, Australian sea lions, New Zealand fur seals and species in the Southern Ocean.

    Plastic bags on the ocean floor take 10-20 years to decompose. Plastic bottles take much longer. Because of this, one piece can kill more than one animal. An animal killed by swallowing plastic will decompose long before the plastic does, leaving the plastic free to kill again.

    A survey by Ocean Watch Australia on Australian beach debris attributed 14% of debris to commercial fishing and 8% to recreational fishing activities.

    I had no idea that it was possible to convert plastic back to oil. If this process can be repeated on a large scale it should be made mandatory in all cities. I went to Google and discovered that most of the worlds plastic trash is being dumped in the Pacific ocean. There are five major garbage patches in the world. The Pacific garbage patch, which is the largest of the five, is located 1,000 miles northeast of Hawaii. In some places, the patch can reach depths of up to 90 feet.
    Fun Fact: New York Mayor Bloomberg thinks he is doing his part in reducing the amount of plastic New York is producing by ordering jugs of water instead of plastic water bottles for major events and parties such as his State of the City Address.

    Plenty of info on the web. Commentators from around the world are anxious to know if and where they can purchase a machine. Though the company still mainly produces larger, industrial machines, Blest Co. will be more than happy to hear from you. Please contact them directly at info@blest.co.jp.
    The company makes the machines in various sizes and has 60 in place at farms, fisheries and small factories in Japan and several abroad. “To make a machine that anyone can use is my dream,” Ito says. “The home is the oil field of the future.”
    Perhaps that statement is not as crazy as it sounds, since the makeup of Japanese household waste has been found to contain over 30% plastic, most of it from packaging.
    Continually honing their technology, the company is now able to sell the machines for less than before, and Ito hopes to achieve a product “that anyone can buy.”
