We all know plastics as a necessary evil. Our lives would be quite miserable without it, but large scale use of plastics is creating pollution havoc not just to our environment and land, but even to the ocean and all the stuff that live there.
While there are a number of avenues being pursued to mitigate plastic pollution, one of the interesting avenues is to turn plastic into – Oil.
Now, how is this possible? This is possible through a process called pyrolysis, and rather than me making it complex, here are some interesting videos on how it is done.
