Technology Turns Plastic to Fuel

There’s a special project making a mini tour of Southern California next week. The Clean Oceans Project is showing off new technology that converts waste plastic into oil without toxic emissions or byproducts.

The project is making a stop on Tuesday, the 21st, at noon at Venice’s Electric Lodge, a solar-powered visual and performing arts center, where you’ll have a chance to catch the demonstration. Engineers at Blest Co. LTD of Japan developed a processing system that vaporizes and then distills the plastic back into petroleum-based liquid fuels.

Want to check out the process in action? To reserve your space at the demonstration, contact Captain Jim Holm at or call 831-251-4656.
