    Pretty cool machine this guy invented. Plastic is made from oil so why not turn it back into oil.

    that system probably needs as much fuel/energy to run as it gets out in usable oil.

    the better systems use a catalyst to crack the hydrocarbons do a search for
    "catalytic depolymerization" some fun with an 80% net energy return sest of all you can rug wood, plastic tires dead animals anything with hydrocarbons
