Every year Americans consume about 10.5 million tons of plastic and only recycle about 1-2% of it. Since the typical milk jug takes about 1 million years to decompose, nearly every single piece of plastic that was ever made still exists today…
Unless, of course, you’re talking about the ones that have been converted into oil with this machine.
Yesterday’s science fiction has officially become today’s reality. This Japanese invention could really change the world if it’s technology was used properly.
