    A team of Japanese researchers say they have found a way to convert plastic waste into liquid fuel. The scientists used a catalyst, by combining the metal, ruthenium with cerium dioxide, to break down the plastic under intense heat. Researchers claim that as much as 77 per cent of the plastic waste will be converted into liquid fuel and another 15 per cent becomes wax.
