Turning plastic back to fuel | Dr. Medha Tadpatrikar | TEDxPICT What happens to the plastic we throw away?

Dr. Medha Tadpatrikar shows us a fantastic innovation that allows us to “recover” plastic by converting it to fuel.

Witnessing the death of deer due to plastic ingestion was the catalyst for Medha to begin working on waste plastic and segregation at source.

Under her leadership, The Keshav Sita trust collects waste plastic. To date, more than 200 metric tonnes of plastic have been collected and saved from the landfill.

She is also instrumental in developing the technology that recovers usable fuel from waste plastic.

At TEDxPICT, Medha will be talking in-depth about the process used to make this fuel and the ways in which we can contribute to reducing plastic waste in a smarter and efficient way. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
