Ohio-based energy company Vadxx is taking plastics that can’t be recycled and reverting them back to there original state… crude oil.
Vadxx CEO Jim Garret said in a press statement:
“Plastics are made from oil, and Vadxx has figured out how to create the lowest sulfur content crude oil in the world, from a commodity that might otherwise occupy space in landfills. Vadxx will take the picked-over scraps of plastics that don’t make the cut for recycling, including auto fluff and e-waste, and run it through its reactors. Which in turn… out comes the crude oil, which the company will then on sell”.
The Good news is that each of its oil production units could shrink landfill deposits by 10 to 14,000 tons a year. Certainly a better solution to drilling the earth.
