Best Ideas 2019 features all the nominated entries submitted under ‘Submit your Idea’ category. All the entries consist of innovative solutions or propositions for an enterprise that champions the Sustainable Development Goals. They can be on the conceptual, planning, or start-up stage.
Plastic to fuel technology
Explain your idea in details:
My idea is to make plastic from fuel. I have choose this idea because i want to reduce plastic pollution and increase jobs. Plastic can be converted into fuel by a process called pyrolysis and this technology called poly green technology. Pyrolysis in which a Filipino invert-er convert plastic into fuel and diesel. The process start bt drying plastics to be processed. They are then cut into smaller pieces and heated in thermal chamber The chamber has very low oxygen so the plastic actually melts instead of burning. The melted plastic is continuously heated until it boils and produce vapors. The vapors is passed inti coolong pipes and distilled into a liquid which is chemically identical to fuel but low sulfur content making it burn cleaner. In Philippines this method has already been approved for industrial use and it is being tested for use in vehicles. Navarro has created this technology. In 2008 his research was even awarded the winner of the Outstanding Creative Research category by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) the machine which is used to convert plastic waste into fuel is called Filipino invert-er.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My target is to reduce plastic pollution My target is to increase jobs and increase economy of our country. My target market will social media and advertisements. I have to take measures to complete my idea I will import machine from phillipines. I will choose worker for collect plastic . I will search a superviser for this idea. I choose workers for selling fuels. 100 to 10 000 pounds plastic can be converted to 10 to 1000 gallons diesel. Machine cost 8 to 8.5 million Price of oil is higher than $2.5 per gallon. In areas where most of the plastic waste comes from, produce 1600 liters of fuel from recycling two metric tons of plastic daily.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
1 Installed capacity Input 6800 MT per annum 2 Output capacity Diesel yield 4979.62 KL per annum 3 Location Pakistan 4 Project cost 6.25 million 5 Days of operation 340 SN Particular Unit Rate(USD) A Feed stock MT 67.08 B Labor Annum 80,208.33 C Electricity KWH 0.11 D Natural gas G j 7.50 E Caustic agent Liters 0.63 F Fuel additives Liters 15.31 G Transportation cost in output KL 27.56 Economics will likely drive adoption of this technology. For example, by tapping the potential of non-recycled plastics, if we could support up to 600 plastic to fuel facilities and generate nearly 39,000 jobs, resulting in nearly 127 billion in economic output from plastic to fuel operations. my teams for implementation of idea are workers for collect plastics supervisor workers for selling fuel
