Plastic Turns into Oil When “Blest”

The Japanese company Blest has done something truly astonishing.  They have created a machine which converts plastics back into oil.  To be more accurate, they have developed several such machines, in varying sizes, from a home table top model to larger industrial scale versions meant for continuous use.

You can watch the Blest CEO, Akinori Ito, explain the machine in this video.  According to what is shown in the subtitle clip, any type of plastic, including styrofoam, plastic bags and bottle caps, can be converted back into oil.  The oil can then be converted into gasoline and other oil by-products.

I don’t know why we haven’t been hearing about it before now, since the technology has been around for over a year, but the $10,000 price tag does make it less than accessible for most people.  Fortunately, it is Blest’s goal to continue to work on the technology and eventually create a machine that will be affordable for everyone.

In the meantime, perhaps it is time for businesses with a large need for oil and gasoline to invest in the continuous use versions.  How fast could we clean up the planet if one large shipping company fueled their trucks on recycled plastic?  Or how about if one of the major oil companies bought one of these machines?

  3. I’m sorry, you will need to contact the Blest company directly, as I am not affiliated with them in any way. Use the link in the first paragraph to reach their website.

  4. This is Awesome! Recently I saw some pieces on shows like CNN and the journal with Joan Lunden on PBS that were talking about issues and solutions for industrial recycling. This kind of thing takes it to the next level. Of course it’s not as good as eliminating oil altogether but it will help get rid of some of the waste for now. I hope they do well.
