Turning food wrappers into fuel

NY Times:

“Dr. [Richard] Gross, a professor of chemistry at Polytechnic University, in Brooklyn, is turning plant oils, of the kind already used to make biodiesel, into “bioplastic.” The plastics can be films or rigid, as are commonly found in food packaging. Then he uses a naturally occurring enzyme to break down the plastic into fuel.”

Probably the closest thing we got to a Mr. Fusion yet. (via Treehugger)
