A Machine That Turns Plastic into Oil...!

Turns out Mr. Fusion is one step closer in becoming a reality...!
Here's a fun fact: did you know that Americans alone throw 2.5 million plastic bottles away every hour...? A Japanese company called Blest may have a solution to all that waste by developing a machine that turns Plastic into Oil. It is also the "smallest and safest oil-to-plastic conversion machines out on the market today."
The key to the process is an electric heater, which heats the plastic enough to melt, but never to the point where it burns, thus avoiding any CO2 fumes. Two pounds of plastic fed to the machine gets you a quart of oil.
