I get that we have a plastic problem. I get that we need to do something about it. But is making fuel from our over-consumption a great idea or another problem waiting to happen? What happens when the demand increases and pretty soon plastic is being created just for fuel? What are the emission issues with this conversion?
Envion has developed and created a first-of-its-kind plastic waste to oil conversion platform and is actively manufacturing, marketing, and licensing its proven technology for the U.S. market, with potential international expansion. The Envion process of plastic waste reuse addresses a host of issues ranging from plastic waste management, the landfill capacity crisis, petroleum reserve depletion/fossil fuel conservation, greenhouse gas emissions, and overall reduction of the world's carbon footprint.
I feel like we’re still missing the point: let’s just quit making the plastic in the first place.
