People whine that Sweden burns garbage instead of separating and recycling. No, they recycle recyclables and incinerate the garbage, about 50/50: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices...-a7471861.html

Most plastic bottles turn into clean burning diesel fuel when heated in a closed container, exhaust is clean methane, distillates are clean #1 mogas/ kerosene mixes.

Japan already has countertop plastic to fuel converters for home use.

It reminds me of those wood gasifiers and the Fischer-Tropsch process that was used in Nazi-built refineries that operated with wood chips as a feedstock in Poland. But anyway, considering that so many plastic waste is disposed in rivers and end up in the oceans, that might be an effective way to minimize this problem.

Does it have a magnetic containment bottle? It I tried that it would stick to the retort and then stick to my fingers.
