NSR Fuel (03-05-2009).jpg

Natural State Research (NSR) has developed a formula to create liquid fuel from most types of plastic waste. The process turns approximately 95% of the plastic into liquid fuel, while the remaining 5% can be used as a substitute for coal with a higher thermal unit value. The fuel produced is suitable for use in cars, trucks, buses, trains, and heavy equipment. NSR technology does not create greenhouse gas emissions and reduces plastic at overburdened landfills, thereby achieving a balance between energy, economics, engineering, and environmental efficiencies, according to the company. The formula will enable OEMs to reduce costs while stabilizing the U.S. market by establishing a more permanent and predictable resource for fuel.
