Changing petrochemical refineries to processing plastics is a logical and necessary step to start addressing this monstrous problem and creating a circular economy. Fuel is one of the refined products, but there are other options too, including making new plastics.

I thought it was interesting the new diesel ran cleaner. I wonder if that's because it's heated and condensed vs cracked.

If it gave 1mpg more and came at a price similar to regular diesel, truckers would be all over it as it would really show up as savings in the miles put on those trucks.

If it made a notable improvement in aviation fuel by increasing efficiency and reducing emissions that would be a nice gain.
