Indonesian community processes plastic waste into gasoline and diesel

The residents of Nagari Sungai Pinang, a village in Indonesia, collect plastic waste and then hand it in to a recycling facility that processes it into gasoline and diesel.

Vapour is collected from a machine that heats the waste and that is then turned into the fuel.

Sisra Ismail, operator of Plastic Waste Processing Machines said: "The process is heated or burned, we need about 3 hours.

"The results of refined fuel oil as much as two litres of oil for every seven kilos of waste. In a day we can process 10 kilos making 3 litres of fuel.

"Hopefully in the future, this can be a lesson for the community so that they do not litter anymore."
