German startup says it can produce fuel from plastic waste



German biofabrik says it is ready to produce fuel after six years of research, according to a German news agency dpa.

The founder and CEO of Biofabrics Oliver Riedel said that the process, involving the exposure of plastic material to high pressure, allows one liter of fuel to be produced from one kilo of plastic waste.

Roman Maletz of the technical university in Dresden, said the process, if implemented, could be a successful approach to securing sustainable energy sources. He added that research in recent years has shown that the technical implementation of the change from plastic waste to fuel is difficult.
