Brightmark started running its waste plastics-to-fuel conversion plant on Friday.
After weeks of testing, it was the first time the company has used the equipment on a full-scale basis to take plastic and turn it into either diesel fuel or commercial grade wax, said Bob Powell, president of Brightmark.
In a nutshell, waste plastic is turned into pellets on site. It is then fed into tanks known as pyrolysers and gets vaporized, then using a process called pyrolysis, the plastic is converted either to diesel fuel or wax.
