Plastic wastes into synthetic crude oil

Plastic wastes into synthetic crude oil | Physics today | Scoop.it
Water sachet nylons, polythene bags, plastic bottles, broken plastic buckets, basins, cans etc., litter the streets and gutters leading to blockage of drains and generally making the environment unsightly and unhealthy.
Prasanna Prakash's insight:

School girls have paved new way to the plastic wastes.

The process goes this way

Combustion -  change of state from solid to liquid

Craking - breaking of complex hydrocarbons into simpler small hydrocarbons

Absorption - oxide s absorption

Prasanna Prakash's curator insight, May 7, 2013 3:29 AM

A spinning planetary body in formation has zero gravity in its center, so mass does accumulate where gravitational and centrifugal forces are balanced within the area of the spinning matter, and that form would be a sphere with openings at the top and bottom, like a hurricane of matter in space - not as a solid body with a solid center (the center has zero gravity)

The Vacuum is NOT Empty

An atom is mostly empty space, but empty space is mostly not empty. The reason it looks empty is because electrons and photons don't interact with the stuff that is there, quark and gluon field fluctuations.


It actually takes energy to clear out space and make a true 'empty' vacuum. This seems incredibly counter-intuitive but we can make an analogy to a permanent magnet. When at low energies, like at room temperature, there is a magnetic field around the magnet due to the alignment of all the magnetic moments of the atoms. But if you add some energy to it by heating it, the particles gain thermal energy, which above the Curie temperature makes their magnetic moments randomly oriented and hence destroying the magnetic field. So in this case energy is needed to clear out the field, just as in the quantum vacuum.
