A machine that converts waste plastic into crude oil is operating at a recycling depot in Whitehorse.
The machine is the first of its kind in North America.
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.
(I wonder who this Japanese man is, will have to google more). Let's vaporize those nasty plastic bags - hey it made oil? Cool.
