Filipino inventor converts used plastics to diesel, kerosene and gasoline

Check out the video on Dateline Philippines on ANC. Experts: Any thoughts on this? For me, first and foremost, it's a great discovery. But secondly, it might be solving two problems (e.g. increasing price of fuel and energy, and proper disposal of plastics) but compounding another (i.e. air pollution), whereas the technologies that are being pursued now are supposedly to go away from fossil fuel dependence. Anyway, since it's two steps forward and one step back, I'm still all for this and I just hope it gets the necessary support in all aspects from government, industries, etc.

Thanks to MC for sharing this link with me.
