Plastic waste recycled into fuel!
Convert plastic waste to fuel? Initially, we might think this is fake news, yet the idea is indeed being developed by startups, in Norway and France in particular. Aviation is one sector that has been using this technology: over the last ten years, an increasing number of flight tests have been conducted using biofuels from recycled products.
We are now producing nearly 300 million tonnes of plastic every year, half of which is for single use.
