Recycling 101

Al Gore should definitely like this tech as it takes plastic and turns it back into oil, something who's time has come but was impossible to do until now. Seems that the Global Resource Corporation has discovered the magic recipe of designing "a machine that uses 1200 different frequencies within the microwave range, which act on specific hydrocarbon materials." by melting them "at the appropriate wavelength" thus breaking down the material in question into diesel oil and combustible gas. Without question, if GRC's Hawk 10 runs at reasonable cost and with little pollution, these babies will be anywhere where recycling is done whether it be scrapyards, landfills or plastic recovery sites located at every supermarket in America.

Very cool idea, very innovative tech.
