Talented Varsity Student Converts Plastic Bottles into Fuel to Power Machines.
Emmanuel Kojo Nimo, a student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has converted plastic bottles into diesel. According to the innovator, he decided to produce fuel to help address the frequent hikes in fuel prices due to Ghana’s economic turmoil.
Speaking to UTV in an interview, Nimo disclosed that his diesel can be used to power diesel machines, including vehicles. He, however, said the product is yet to receive approval from the Ghana Standards Authority, GSA. Ghana produces a huge amount of plastic waste, and Nimo is helping to tackle the menace.
Per Nimo, the fuel will be ideal for domestic and commercial use once it gains approval from the Authority. The video in which he gives the media a closer look at his innovation has raked in thousands of views and comments, with most people urging support and protection for him.
