First Ever Filipino Inventor That Turns Garbage Into Much Cheaper Gasoline



Philippines is a breeding ground for undiscovered and, more often than not, unappreciated geniuses of many sorts.

Sadly, the truth that the Philippine government still lacks stern support and financial assistance for our creative Filipino inventors still haunts us up to this day.

Blame it on what they call as “colonial mentality”, our very own inventors still have a long way to go.

Just like Mr. Jayme Navarro, who found his own way of turning plastic into fuel, through a process called  “Pyrolysis”.

Working with Poly-Green Technology and Resources, a Philippine based company, Navarro, discovered the process while trying to convert plastic waste back into its original virgin form.

Pyrolysis is a fairly simple process, it starts by drying plastics to be processed. They are then shredded into smaller pieces, and heated in a thermal chamber.

The melted plastic is continually heated until it boils and produce vapors. The vapor is passed into cooling pipes and distilled into a liquid which is chemically identical to regular fuel.

The process itself is already amazing, but what is more amazing is the fact that the fuel it produces actually burns cleaner the regular fuel.

Since gas from plastic has lower sulfur content. Plus with low production costs and an overwhelming supply of plastic trash, the fuel is about 10% to 20% cheaper.

Large-scale implementation of the system will definitely help the environment and significantly reduce the country’s garbage problems. In can provide an alternative source of fuel, and if widely used, it would decrease pollution from vehicle emissions as well.

A Pyro-Green plant has now been running for three months, producing 1,600 liters of fuel from 2 metric tons of plastic daily. The fuel produced is continually being tested in vehicles, and so far they have very good results.
