Approximately 20% of the waste in  modern landfills is non-degradable plastic. Ozmotech have created a solution to convert this waste into diesel fuel.

Their patented process uses liquefaction, pyrolysis and catalytic breakdown to render 1kg of waste plastic into 950ml of oil or Green Fuel. This contains the same energy content as conventional diesels, but with "significantly reduced emissions levels". Existing diesel engines are said to run fully effectively on these fuels with no engine modification. It works best with PP, PE and PS plastics but can also manage ABS, PA, PUR and EVA but is not so keen on PVC or PET.
