On Tuesday, Australian Broadcasting Corporation was informed about the patented device that is developed by Len Humphreys and Thomas Maschmeyer, a Sydney University professor, to process plastic. The pair of Australian scientists have come off with the solution of the significant problem in today’s environment that is the recycling of plastic. Plastic is the only thing that currently cannot be recycled.

Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor

Len Humphreys and Thomas Maschmeyer have invented a device called Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor. The method that can dispose of plastic is known as the Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor (Cat-HTR). Humphreys said to Australian Broadcasting Corporation that the new device could be disposed of plastic into fuel or remade new plastic with the process that is known as chemical recycling. By the process of chemical recycling, the plastic changes at a molecular level, and after that, it turns the plastic into oil.

Len Humphreys also said that Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor is different from physical recycling as you don’t have to separate the plastic according to the type and color. The device could convert the plastic back to the liquids and the chemical that they were formed. The device could also transform the plastic into bitumen, petrol, or any different kind of plastic, according to Len Humphreys.

The Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor could recycle everything from milk cartons to wetsuits as per the report. The product is going to be introduced in the United Kingdom by the company Licella as the company is pushing the technology into the market. This product is an emergency requirement all around the globe to reduce the waste as every year, only ten percent of the 3.5 tons of plastics that are thrown away are recycled. Due to the increasing misuse, the plastic was almost banned from the market; still, the issue is not resolved, the new device may reduce the problem.
