Indian scientists in US convert discarded plastic into petroleum products.

    Indian-origin scientists based in US have successfully converted plastic shopping bags into diesel, natural gas and other useful petroleum products. Brajendra Kumar Sharma, a senior research scientist at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center led the research. He said it involved a process called pyrolysis which is essentially heating the bags in an oxygen-free chamber. Sharma said. "We can just use it as a drop-in fuel in the ultra-low-sulphur diesel without the need for any changes."
