See plastic? Akinori Ito sees oil.

I wrote about the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" where a vast quantities of plastic and marine debris have been drawn towards the swirling vortex of ocean currents.

Is anyone doing something about it I know that Jose Luis Gutierrez-Garcia is, through Upcycle the Gyres and they are seeking funds to get it moving. 

You heard it right!  They are going to invest in a desk top machine that will turn plastic waste into oil.  Wow!  Is that possible or just an idea to work on?

Take a look at Blest, an invention by Japanese, Akinori Ito, and you will know that this is not a pipe dream.

Good luck, Jose.
