Global Resource Corp. of West Berlin, N.J., has developed what company officials call a 100 percent emission- and pollutant-free green machine to recycle automotive plastics and foam — shredder residue, or “fluff.”
The Hawk 10 uses high-frequency microwave technology to convert fluff — textiles, foams, plastics, rubber and light metal parts from scrap cars — into oil and gas.
The microwaves gasify the materials and convert them into 80 percent light combustible gases and 20 percent oil. The gas then is cycled in a closed-loop system to fuel the next round of material breakdown, without emitting harmful waste, according to Global Resource.
Global Resource said the Hawk 10 also can produce oil and gas from coal, oil shale, bitumen and tar sands.
