A great news for all Hyderabadi's. In todays' market. oil and petrol are most costly and It's expensive, it's non-renewable and it's easily the most-required resource we have today. 

Engineers from Hyderabad invented petrol made from plastic which is costing us for 40/- per litre only. You obviously wouldn't believe us, would you?


A Hyderabad mechanical specialist has done the incomprehensible by making petroleum out of utilized plastic and is presently selling it at Rs 40 for every liter! Educator Satish Kumar, who has established an organization enlisted with the Ministry of Micro, little and medium endeavors, expressed that the three-advance method to change over plastic to fuel is known as 'plastic pyrolysis'. 

Since 2016, the teacher has changed over 50 tons of 'end life plastic', which is plastic that can't be reused, into fuel and as of now, his organization is delivering 200 liters of petroleum every day, out of 200 kg of plastic and selling it for a negligible sum.

"The process helps recycle plastic into diesel, aviation fuel and petrol. About 500-kg of non-recyclable plastic can produce 400 litres of fuel. It is a simple process which requires no water and doesn't release wastewater. Neither does it pollute the air as the process happens in a vacuum,"  Satish Kumar told News 18. 

The fuel is currently being used for industries but is yet to be tested for vehicles. And if it does, I think fuel prices will see a new day and age in India! Except for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), all other kinds of plastic can be used to make petrol.

The Engineer also stated that "“Our main aim behind starting this plant is to help the environment. We are not expecting commercial benefits. We are only trying to do our bit to ensure a cleaner future. We are ready to share our technology with any interested entrepreneur,”  he added.
