This innovational japansese machine converts plastic into oil

Plastics are the ultimate trash and scourge of the modern society. They
are non-biodegradable or combustible, and they continue to be there for
millenniums and still not chemically decompose. But since we cannot live
without this plastic trash, we are slowly suffocating Earth with its
All our fresh water bodies are affected by their over usage,
and soon we will be looking towards lesser numbers of marine life and
greater contamination. There have been attempts to deal with the
situation by chemical engineers and scientists like converting Plastic bottles into rope or wire,
converting them into a strand of thread for making garments, etc. Now a
Japanese innovator has made a machine that can chemically convert the
plastics into oil. 

The guy behind this amazing invention, Akinori Ito, uses a tabletop
machine to convert useless plastic rubbish into crude oil. The converter
can transform 2 lbs of useless plastic junk into a quart of oil using
just one kilowatt-hour or unit of electricity to do it. 
The machine can
work with all kinds of common plastics like styrofoams, polystyrene and
polypropylene. It is a very simple device in construction, and you can
make oil production a household thing with the help of this concept. It
will also help reducing the carbon footprint on the face of the Earth,
and it can also be shipped via air.

But, the utility of this machine is more than economics. It is getting
rid of the goliath of problems that accompany the ugly side of
consumerism. We throw away millions and millions of tons of plastic
trash away and it’s a constant headache for the government,
environmentalists and public alike. This machine could eventually change
all that!
