We envision the use of organic chemistry to produce food molecules; amino acids, carbohydrates and fatty acids derived from plastic residue.

Simone, sim é contra-intuitivo, mas perfeitamente realizavel. Nenhuma lei da natureza é ferida. Acho legal pensar o inexperado.

Flavio commented on From Plastics to Food

The chemistry underlining our idea from plastics to food:
1. The plastics gasification process to form syngas
2. The refining of syngas by Fischer-Tropsch to form the chemical intermediates: Methanol, Ethanol, Acetic acids and Aldehydes, MTBE, DME.

3. The chemical synthesis of amino acids, please check this instructive video:
