A Japanese man and his company, Blest, have been touring the globe showing off a little machine they invented which can turn plastic garbage back into oil.
As the video describes, plastics are made from oil, so why shouldn't we be able to turn plastics back into oil once we're through with them? This is great thinking. Why do we dump tons and tons of plastic waste into landfills (and oceans) every day, when the technology currently exists to reclaim the energy in that waste and turn it into fuel?
Plastic waste, the video says, "are a treasure." I'm not sure why our species is so good at squandering.
