Turning Plastic into Biodegradable Carbon

What if the solution to plastic pollution is not recycling? The reason plastic ended up in the ocean was the result of mismanagement from the recycling industry.

Has the Recycling Industry fully recycled the plastic they received or do they ship them out to third world countries where the plastic waste is mismanaged and ended up in landfills and rivers, and eventually in the ocean? We as responsible citizens have taken the effort to separate our trash, so we expect plastic to be properly recycled and not just shipped out to some third world nations!

Sadly, those big regulations telling you to separate your trash from plastic and those big banners promoting plastic recycling as a green solution are just offering you a false illusion.

But the true question is:  Should we recycle Plastic? Do we really need to recycle plastic?

The Oil & Gas Industry has not slowed down in pumping oil to make Plastic cheaper and more available. Recycling will only overload the entire world with more plastic leading to surplus of plastic which lowers the price therefore limiting any potential profit and incentive for recycling. 

The fact that there is no profit to plastic recycling in the Western World is why they are shipped out to the third world countries and eventually dumped into the ocean.

Perhaps, it is time to consider something different!

What We suggest: Converting Plastic into a usable form of carbon for microorganisms that increase soil carbon.


To do this, we require no less than $5million USD to build a new reactor that can withstand reactions with supercritical water. We are also building a new feedstock-delivery system where most Supercritical Hydrothermal Systems failed. The techno-economics will also be calculated with this funding. The plan is to obtain the $5mil from Kickstarter, not GOFUNDME.
Previously, I have developed a semi-continuous prototype reactor on my OWN PERSONAL SAVINGS to convert biosolid to biocrude oil(petroleum in bioform). With some modification to the system, plastic can be converted into biodegradable organic acids that can be used in Agriculture. Such a system can be initially used in improved soil fertility and producing linen/cotton (instead of food production). Linen and Cotton material can replace Plastic in many areas such as clothing,  grocery bags and other fabric materials. Thus channeling away carbon from petroleum made plastic into biodegradable carbon. Please visit our website at www.beyondoptimum.com for more information

Currently, we are planning to use KICKSTARTER Crowdfunding to acquire seed funding for the project. If you like our idea, please help us monetarily to prepare for funding to successfully launch a kickstarter campaign. 

The $20,000 goal is for use in publicity (paying google and facebook to advertise) for Kickstarter Crowdfunding. Kickstarter Crowdfunding is where we would acquire our seed funding for the project.

Above are 2 of the three products we will use for our kickstater campaign, made of some really beautiful crystals.
They look far more beautiful in real life, I just couldn't get them to look as good on the photos.

Please also support our cause by sharing our concept with your friends.

Please do visit our website for some FREE Calendars. The pictures were taken by myself of all the beautiful places I have been to. Please also share these calendars with your friends so that more people know that we have the right technology in place, we just lack the funding to put it to work.
