Ground Breaking Japanese Invention

Fascinating. Is this machine being marketed in the UK now or anytime soon?

nope but it is probably why the local councils are employing bin nazi's and getting so ******** about separating plastic waste :lol:

apparently this guy was offered a princely sum for the plans by BP, he declined so they sent him tickets for a hill walking package holiday as a parting gift.

If this is such a great idea then why hasn't somebody else done it? It looks too good to be true, you put in a load of junk and at the end you're left with black gold.

How much energy does it take to run this thing?*

*It says underneth, for $0.20 of electricty it creates $1.50 worth of oil. It's a miracle!

My uneducated answer would be, (1) oil was cheaper before, and (2) waste plastic disposal wasn't such an acute problem before.

How much energy does it take to run this thing?

It says below the video in the link:

1 kg of plastic produces one liter of oil, which costs $1.50. This process uses only about 1 kilowatt of electricity, which costs less than 20 cents!

Besides, much of that 1kw will end up heating the room you do it in, won't it.

My question is, will it take solid hard plastic, e.g. broken bits of children's toys.
