Chemical process converts plastic into jet fuel ingredients in an hour

Researchers Hongfei Lin and Chuhua Jia have developed a new technique for recycling plastics, which reduces it to the building blocks for jet fuel and other products

While millions of tons of plastic are produced in the US each year, only around 9 percent is recycled, and that is largely due to the difficulties around reducing the material to useful building blocks for other products. A new chemical treatment developed by scientists at Washington State University (WSU) could help chip away at this problem – a treatment that’s been demonstrated by turning the most commonly used plastic into jet fuel components within one hour.
