Bio fuel from platic waste

An interesting existing technology is the ability to produce crude oil from plastic waste. This technology can recycle any type of plastic, even old and dirty ones. The plastic is crushed, and then warm up to be transform into gaz. Afterwards, it is cool down in water and the separated oil can be recovered at the surface.

According to company Agilyx (there are competitors: Cymar & Vadxx energy) more than 75% of the initial weight is converted to crude oil in the process. And with 10 tons of plastic, they can produce 40 barrels net (10 barrels are used in the process). The world plastic waste annual production can be estimated around 280 million tons, so it means a potential of 70 million barrel recycled in a year, without using the existing plastic waste.
