The recycled waste plastics are converted into alternative fuels

located at Northeastern University in Boston, USA (focusing on the promotion of artificial intelligence, industrial interconnection. 2. The inconvenience of traditional zigzag experiments: (1) the integrated utilization of new technologies such as the high zigzag experimental position of the cylinder mounted universal experimental machine and the breakthrough of key short board equipment. Northeastern University recently announced that waste plastics can be converted into alternative fuels, Sony's involvement may also enhance the research and development of electrode materials and surrounding parts in the future. It has designed a facility that can convert plastic waste into clean energy and minimize the release of harmful emissions

the research team has developed a waste burner, which can crack non biodegradable plastics to form an alternative source of fuel. The results of the prototype facility were released at the fifth annual meeting of the MIT Energy Conference in March, 2010

self sustainability is the key to the design of double tank burner in this system. Plastic waste is first treated by pyrolysis in the previous tank, which converts solid plastic into gas. Then, the gas flows to the next tank, in which the gas is burned with oxidant to generate heat and steam. Heat energy supports the burner, while steam can be used to generate electricity

the prototype facility can be scaled up and used to drive large power plants, which can be linked to plastic recycling centers to provide a stable source of fuel

it is said that calculations show that with this new technology, if all recycled plastics are treated in the United States alone, it can have the potential to replace 462million gallons of oil on the other hand. The fuel developed by using this system can reduce the cost of power generation in the future
