Have you heard about the new special type of rocket fuel that is made from plastic waste? One company uses particular kinds of plastic to remake them in rocket fuel

Plastics are just polymers of organic molecules derived from oil, NG or coal. No doubt methods might come about to process plastic waste into either fuels or recycled plastic. Hopefully a starter could be plastic bottles for water, the most useless unfriendly environmentally product ever.

Plastics actually have a lot of potential in a few different fields, have even tested it in a lab turning plastic waste mixed with iron oxide and aluminium oxide then microwaved into hydrogen with the remaining byproduct being carbon nanotubes.

Unfortunately, not all kinds of plastic can be used. The following types of plastic waste can be converted into rocket fuel: Polypropylene (PP). Polyester (PE). Polystyrene (PS) and their mixtures and analogs

The new type of rocket fuel is called alternative rocket fuel or ecosene rocket fuel. This new kind of rocket fuel has already been tested and the result of the test has shown that it`s 1% - 3% better than kerosene by its energy characteristics. But I am not sure if it`s possible to use the new rocket fuel in long space journeys.

Not in all countries you can directly drink from the tap.
Specially in hot countries you can not drink from the tap, but because you need to drink all the time, you are forced to buy water in plastic bottles.
