Whitehorse gets machine to convert plastic into oil - North - CBC News:
A machine that converts waste plastic into crude oil is operating at a recycling depot in Whitehorse.


Project manager Andy Lera first read about what he calls the "amazing" machine more than a year ago. He read that a Japanese man who was tired of seeing so much waste plastic being burned had found a relatively inexpensive way of converting plastic to crude oil.
Lera pitched the idea to Cold Climate Innovation at Yukon College’s research centre. The centre convinced the federal government to share in the cost, which is around $200,000.
McInroy said people in Whitehorse throw away more than 900,000 kilograms of waste plastics every year. The machine can turn 10 kilograms of plastic into 10 litres of synthetic diesel.
“I do believe it can pay for itself, but I also believe it takes care of a larger problem, which is the waste plastics that are quite frankly getting thrown in the garbage. Now if we can close the loop on that, I think that's every recycler’s goal,” said McInroy.

  1. Great idea but I see more potential for this machine at the private or business level than as a government enterprise.

    Imagine farmers offering stipends or fresh farm goods in exchange for recycled plastics or a cab company offering fare discounts for recycled plastic.
