Technology like this represents hope for the future. I haven’t seen the cost/benefit analysis of what it takes to produce the oil from recycled plastic but the environmental benefit is clear. Anything produced with the benefit of scale becomes relatively cheap. Looking forward, with widespread adoption this technology will change and may eventually become obsolete as we replace our dependence on fossil fuels and/or substitute an alternative earth friendly material for plastic. It may take awhile but all good things come with time!
