Tech to convert tonnes of garbage into fuel
The technology is winning rave revie asics gel ws.
“We would like to see this powerful innovation commercialised around the world, not just Texas,” James Vance, business development manager of the global commercialisation group, IC2 Institute, told HT from the University of Texas. “We believe it should be able to convert most, and perhaps all types of hydrocarbon based waste to fuel.”
Vance added that IC2, which provides innovators from emerging economies commercialisation expertise, has received more interest in this technology than any innovation it has examined.
The asics gel technology yields 1.1 litr asics gel es of fuel from one kilo of plastic bags, and 1.2 litres fuel from one kilo of polyethylene sacks used for packaging, all at a cost of Rs. 11 12 per litre. One kilo of plastic coating on wires yields 600 ml of fuel.
Mumbai’s municipal corporation does aim to earn carbon credits from capping the Gorai dump and generating electricity from its methane emissions. But at Rao’s plant in Vasai, on Mumbai’s asics gel northern fringe, his staff is testing a quicker method.
Plastic is converted into vapour and passed through cartridges containing a catalyst or a chemical to breakdown the molecules into liquid fuel and gas. The plant is self energised, on gas generated from the waste conversion process.
