Recycling is awesome

A new source of hydrocarbons from trashy used plastic:

Hmmm.... I like this. I'm sure there's enough tossed plastic to make lots of hydrocarbons by pyrolysis of waste plastics, from pretty much anywhere.  May the oceans, landfills, plastic recycling programs be another way to get ourselves off that damned Mid East oil. Here's yet another reason to impose an oil import fee. What would be really cool is to start mining landfills for stuff to pyrolyze into hydrocarbons.

Heh, Rags love pyrolysis. Burn, baby burn.
