A Big WOW! For Earth From The Little Island Of Japan
Akinori Ito has invented a machine called Blest, which converts plastic back into oil! Yes, really.
Looking eerily like the DeLorean’s flux capacitor in the Back To The Future movies, Ito’s machine is produced in various sizes, for both industrial and home uses. It can easily transform a kilogram of plastic waste into a liter of oil, using about 1 kilowatt of electricity but without emitting CO2 in the process. The machine uses a temperature controlling electric heater instead of flames, processing anything from polyethylene or polystyrene to polypropylene (numbers 2-4).
1 kg of plastic produces one liter of oil. This takes about 1 kilowatt of electricity, which costs 20 cents. 1 liter diesel oil costs $1.50 NOW, this is what I call recycling!
Although the company still mainly produces larger, industrial-use machines, people from around the world are anxious to know if and where they can purchase a machine. So, here you go – Blest– click on the english catalogue to get you answers direct from the horse’s mouth.
A wonderful invention to sustainably utilize the huge waste problem of the wonderful invention of plastic. It’s looking better and better ….
