It's not very surprising considering plastic is made from oil in the first place. Yet another thing we run out of if we run out of oil.

We can make combustible oil out of other substances. A lot of plastic is already made from other substances/mixtures of chemicals.

I love that they can turn plastic back into oil now. Imagine how much waste this will save once (if?) the machine is put into recycling plants.

Man, the Japanese do think of everything.

Sounds like it's a pretty efficient way of converting trash back into oil. If he can start making bigger machines to do this, maybe there will eventually be no need for oil drilling and plastic trash will become a valuable commodity. That'd be a nice turn of events.

Why would BP want it? They need more stuff to remove oil from water not oil from plastic.
