In BALI much of the trash used to be biodegradable, such as banana leaves that rapped food items. Nowadays our modern words raps everything in plastic, which largely can’t be recycled.
INSTEAD the many rivers or the little streams have become the convenient conveyor belt of trash, that runs right out into the evil ocean.
Many old Balinese collect the recyclable bottles and already do sell them back to be recycled. That part is already in place and offers a meager but noticeable sustenance.
But nobody knows what to do with all the useless simple plastic bags. HERE IS AN AMAZING MACHINE from JAPAN.
The Blest Co. offers a truly revolutionary alternative.
AT Shambala we are in the process of collecting funds to purchase the smaller unit, which costs 12.000 USD and can burn up to 1 kg in 1 hr.
If we burn the plastic, we generate toxins and a large amount of CO2. If we convert it into oil, we save CO2 and at the same time increase people’s awareness about the value of plastic garbage. —Akinori Ito, CEO of Blest.
“If we burn the plastic, we generate toxins and a large amount of CO2. If we convert it into oil, we save CO2 and at the same time increase people’s awareness about the value of plastic garbage,” says Akinori Ito, CEO of Blest.
Blest’s conversion technology is very safe because it uses a temperature controlling electric heater rather than flame. The machines are able to process polyethylene, polystyrene and polypropylene but not PET bottles.
The result is a crude gas that can fuel things like generators or stoves and, when refined, can even be pumped into a car, a boat or motorbike. One kilogram of plastic produces almost one liter of oil. To convert that amount takes about 1 kwh of electricity, which is approximately ¥20 or 20 cents’ worth.
The company makes the machines in various sizes and has 60 in place at farms, fisheries and small factories in Japan and several abroad.
