This Filipino company’s making three types of fuel using plastic waste
Talk about Pinoy pride
Apr 4, 2018
Another day, another solution has been made for our great, big plastic problem.
ReconX is a Filipino company that transforms our accumulating plastic waste into something reusable: energy. They came up with a clean and close-looped patented system that takes our plastic waste and makes it into fuel. So far, they’ve made three types of fuel: diesel, kerosene, and gasoline.
Other than being a means for reusing plastic waste, these fuels from ReconX also offer a cleaner alternative to the fossil fuel we use every day.
The small energy company is co-founded by social entrepreneur, Mark Ruiz. He is also the president of Hapinoy, founding partner and board member of Rags2Riches, and co-founder and chief strategy officer of AwesomeLab.
Here’s to more eco-ethical companies in our future.
