Chemistry Magic, Made From Old Plastic
By the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. This company believes chemistry is the key to stopping this.

Less than 10 percent of plastic waste is recycled and few solutions exist to renew low-value plastics, like soda bottles, gum wrappers and trash bags.

Renewlogy has developed a system that changes low-value plastic back into its basic molecular structure. This allows non-recycled plastic waste to be converted into new products, such as high-value fuels.

The team at Renewlogy has opened two commercial facilities in Salt Lake City and Nova Scotia. Each facility processes 10 tons of plastic each day and converts them into 60 barrels of fuel.
