Is this the ultimate solution for Waste Management and World Fuel crisis?? These two guys from Mumbai have been able to create a process to convert all kinds of inorganic waste into liquid fuel and gas! And it has people really excited!
T Raghavendra Rao, director, Sustainable Technologies and Environmental Projects (STEPS) filed for a global patent last year for his technique of converting waste — think plastic, sewage, slaughterhouse waste, hospital waste, petroleum byproducts — into liquid fuel and gas. And it’s easy on the environment, for the process does not emit heat-trapping gases that contribute to global warming.
Rao, a former oil industry expert, thinks ‘waste is wonderful, it’s a resource.’ “Mumbai’s waste generated daily should be recycled daily too,’’ Rao emphasised. “We aim to come to the market with a globally acceptable system to recycle plastic, electronic and organic waste in 24 hours.’’
The technology is winning rave reviews.
“We would like to see this powerful innovation commercialised around the world, not just Texas,’’ James Vance, business development manager of the global commercialisation group, IC2 Institute, told HT from the University of Texas. “We believe it should be able to convert most, and perhaps all types of hydrocarbon-based waste to fuel.”
