A 45-year-old mechanical architect from Hyderabad has concocted an original thought of making oil out of utilized plastic. Teacher Satish Kumar, who has established an organization enlisted with the service of miniaturized scale, little and medium ventures, said the three-advance procedure of changing over plastic into fuel is known as plastic pyrolysis.
“The procedure reuses plastic into diesel, flight fuel and petroleum. Around 500-kg of non-recyclable plastic can deliver 400 liters of fuel. It is a basic procedure which requires no water and doesn’t discharge wastewater. Neither does it contaminate the air as the procedure occurs in a vacuum,” Kumar told News18.
Since 2016, the educator has changed over 50 tons of ‘end-life’ plastic (that can’t be reused) into fuel. At present, his organization is delivering 200 liter of petroleum consistently out of 200kg of plastic and selling the equivalent at neighborhood ventures for Rs 40/50 for every liter.
In any case, the convenience of this fuel for vehicles is yet to be tried. A wide range of plastics, aside from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and PET (polyethylene terephthalate), can be utilized without the requirement for isolation.
“Our principle point behind beginning this plant is to support nature. We are not anticipating business benefits. We are just attempting to do our bit to guarantee a cleaner future. We are prepared to impart our innovation to any intrigued business visionary,” he said.
