Renewlogy: From Plastic to Oil
Renewlogy, new branding for PK Clean, solves the problem of plastic waste entering landfills and oceans by turning it into fuel. Reduce, reuse, recycle and bans are the best answers, but sometimes feels like a fly slowing a locomotive. Concurrently, 8-12 million metric tons of plastic are ending up in our oceans due to runoff annually. 500 million plastic straws continue to be produced each day and 1500 plastic water bottles are used every second in the US. It’s time to not only stop using plastics but to also give plastic value in a circular economy.
POP and Renewlogy are working together to develop the solution to plastic marine pollution. The photo here shows one vial of plastics and the amount of oil it can produce. Thats right, roughly 80% of landfill bound plastics convert into a resource!
On a large scale, this depolymerization exudes no emissions, is self sufficient and returns energy on a 1 to 50 ratio!

We are currently fundraising to get a portable plastic to fuel converter to the Haitian people as a means to cleanup their island and provide clean fuel that otherwise has to be imported.
