Modern Renewable Energy Solution from Plastics

Recent calamities have created havoc and devastation to developed and developing countries alike. Thousands and thousands of lives have been taken; billions of dollars of properties have been destroyed. We are aware of these events; however, we choose to turn a blind eye to the cause of these drastic changes. Climate change is real, and humanity and the way we live are the primary causes of these changes. It is clearly time to set a firm foot for change but how do we do so?

The green industry today is presenting renewable energy options and lifestyle changes. But are we really willing to adapt to these changes? Are we ready to convert to a greener lifestyle to combat the growing causes of climate change? Sometimes, modern renewable energy solutions may be viewed as complicated processes. It would be to everyone’s benefit if the industry made their message clearer; less biased jargon free. Green technologies as we know it are presented in various forms. Big or small, green technologies share a single cause; to lessen the impact of climate change, to create a better environment and to protect our resources for future generations.

Increased energy demand and higher production prices are driving efforts to convert organic compounds into useful hydrocarbon fuels. Although much of this work has focused on biomass, there are strong benefits to deriving fuels from waste plastic materials. Many green companies are focused on providing renewable energy using elements such as heat, air or currents. Others usually opt for more organic materials; all aiming to lessen carbon emission content.

A modern renewable energy that is being proposed in the green industry by an industry innovator uses plastic to be converted into fuel. Yes, you read it right! Plastic is now being converted into fuel. Styrofoam and co-mingled plastic waste that are discarded in dump-sites all over the world are now being used as feedstock for the conversion of plastic to oil.

A sophisticated technology that uses compressed gas has unique abilities in transforming plastic materials into fuel. A plastic to oil technology is simply run by a single operator, with technology applications to provide real time data, allowing the process to be monitored continuously. The system generates data allowing the controller to access parts of the machine without being on the operations floor. Feedstock that is utilized in the conversion process is sourced from landfills, which are rarely touched by recycling centers. Most of the plastic materials are mixed with other rubbish and are hard to sort. The abundance of this feedstock allows green companies such as Poly2Petro to produce stable supply of feed that would be turned into fuel.

Renewable fuel produced by plastic to oil conversion technology maybe fed into power generating plants to reduce the use of natural fuel (fossil fuel). It could also be used to run our cars, thus lessening our reliance on petrol and other precious natural resources. Many of us are concerned and are now educating themselves on the causes of climate change. The more that we address the factors that lead to these changes, the better the prognosis it will endow our environment.

Plastics are visibly, carelessly scattered throughout urban and rural. For too often; they spill into the natural ecosystem, polluting the environment and affecting other species on a wide scale. Man’s innovations are said to be the main cause of the climate changes that we are experiencing today; but these innovations could also be part of the environmental solution.

    Converting plastic into crude oil by burning it is also a common way to recover potential energy sources.The crude oil can be then used to heat generators and some stoves, and also for gasoline once refined.
