Engineering students convert waste plastic into oil: Karnataka

Four last semester understudies of the petrochemicals division of KBN Engineering College, Kalaburagi city, have made an exceptional leap forward in changing over waste plastics into oil that is broadly utilized as a part of mechanical creation, including power generators and diesel pumps.

Training NewsThe inventive procedure embraced by them for the mechanical assembly that is utilized as a part of changing over the plastics – including polypropylene, polyethylene, and polystyrene – has been effectively designed and tried by Fateh Mohammad, Mohammad Amanathulla Khan, Tafseer Furqan Sharieff, and Waseem Ahmed Shariff and they now propose to patent the item.
