Giant microwave turns plastic back to oil – earth – 26 June 2007 – New Scientist Environment

Key to GRC’s process is a machine that uses 1200 different frequencies within the microwave range, which act on specific hydrocarbon materials. As the material is zapped at the appropriate wavelength, part of the hydrocarbons that make up the plastic and rubber in the material are broken down into diesel oil and combustible gas.

This is important for both recycling reasons and for the profound dependency we have on plastics.
