2nd... one kilo plastic to one liter oil? yeah right... that would be like a 1:1 conversion rate. If you believe that then I have a free engery generator to sell for you.Thermal Degradation of Polymer Materials
, which is the authority research level textbook on this subject, states;For Polystyrene
"A TG study of waste expanded polystyrene and general-purpose PS revealed that pyrolysis is activated
around 380 °C and the rate of thermal degradation was maximal at 430 °C [a.378].
Maximum styrene selectivity (75 wt%) with oil yield (95 wt%) was achieved during the
pyrolysis of waste expanded polystyrene at 450 °C."Other Plastics
"Thermal degradation of plastics such as PE, PVC, PET and their mixtures (PE + PVC and
PE + PET) has been studied at 430 °C by batch operation to analyse the conversion of
waste plastics into fuel oil [a.399]. Products of degradation were classifi ed into the three
groups of gases, liquids and residues in the reactor. The degradation of PE produced liquid
products that consisted of a C5–C25 fraction of hydrocarbons with a yield of 70 wt%
the other hand, the degradation of PVC produced only 4.7 wt% liquid products, which
consisted of a C5–C20 fraction of hydrocarbons; while the degradation of PET produced no
The mean % yield for PE and PS is 85%..... so it can NEVER be a 1 kg to 1 liter conversion....
So you can't make fuel from PETE plastics which are indicated by
PET or PETE contains Endocrine Disruptor's.....
PET is all soda bottles, most if not all water bottles as well as some liquor bottles along with a variety of other food bottles and trays. PET can be melted and drawn out into long fibers and recycled into carpets, fiberfill for jackets, and fabric for T-shirts and shopping bags which unfortunately cannot be recycled.
Be aware that Coca Cola only uses 3 percent recycled PET in their bottles. BOYCOTT COCA COLA PRODUCTS.......http://www.thecoca-colacompany.com/brands/brandlist.html
The following is from this:http://www.napcor.com/pdf/2009_Report.pdf
"The negative growth in PET bottles
and jars sold in the United States (U.S.), first seen in 2008, continued through 2009. The same “perfect storm” conditions reported in
2008 were in play again in 2009; poor weather, the weak economy, and dietary concerns all contributed to significant loss of sales in the beverage category
, particularly in the
isotonic drinks segment."
"in 2009, 1,400 MMLBS collected (recyclable), 5,149 MMLBS on shelves, 28% Gross recycling"WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE CHOICES WE MAKE......
So in short this "Device" which as stated before is not new, and cannot deal with the real problem and that is PET containers is associated with the UN University.. so in short it is total bullshit........
