Chicken bones and tires turned into oil

I was just curious is anyone had seen or heard anything about this company?

Changing World Technologies

This company has designed a process which can break down most materials into their raw state and then extract oil, gas and other minerals from the substance.

CWT has opened their first facility in Nebraska, not far away from the Con Agra plant which has mounds of chicken bones gathering.

CWT has taken these bones and applied their process to them, and in turn has extracted oil from what was previously thought of as nothing but garbage.

What possibilities does this technology hold for the future? Does this mean that landfills will eventually be a thing of the past as we extract valuable materials from our years of waste?

Looks interesting but that's just the home page. Where is the article on this topic?

My bad intrepid. Here are some news tidbits:

CWT in the news

Now let's look a little further, to the subheading "Technological savvy could turn 600 million tons of turkey guts and other waste into 4 billion barrels of light Texas crude each year ". Apply a bit of that skepticism that journalism once relied on. How many pounds is 600 million tons. Multiply 600,000,000 by 2000 to get 1200 billion pounds. Now lets look at the oil. Depending on your definition of barrel, one of them weighs 300 to 400 pounds. So multiply 4 billion by 300 and you get 1200 billion pounds. What a strange coincidence! These phoneys say they can turn every pound of mixed water, dirt, rocks, paper, steel, acetone, tars, polyethylene, concrete (and oh, yes, turkey scraps too) into one pound of - are you ready for this - not just oil, not just a grease derivative, but light Texas crude.

And a blurb pertaining to the Con Agra plant.

Other companies are claiming the same thing.


If you think about it, most garbage is composed of a lot of carbon and hydrogen molecules. All you have to do is rearrange them into something useful.

Yep, apply enough pressure and pretty much anything can become oil.

Those millions of tonnes of dirt made the oil we use today, why not replicate it?

You know, a few years back i recall hearing about a company that was able to make tires that went for 150,000 miles, and ten year wiper blades. They did it without oil, using silicone and an organic agent similar ot peat moss. When it was turned into waste, there was a simple process to return it to its previous components. I saw this on regular news channels, as well as Discovery about 8 years ago or so.

Why is it still not on the market when i saw cars on a test track using these tires? I know that there are race cars that use them, but i am talking about a different animal. These were made of basically sand and peat and were hard enough for daily use. They weren't silicone in the same way that race track tires are.

Back in the early 90's there was a company called Castle Capital located in Nova Scotia that was taking tires and grinding them down, running them through an auger and into some sort of chemical and combustion process to reduce them into crude oil. Supposedly the gasses that were created were then turned around and fed back into the machine as fuel to run it. I invested and a year later they fired all top management and the stock dropped like a rock. It has been bought out twice since. At one time it was a hot buy and supposed to change our future. Nothing much has occured though that I have seen. I'm not sure who owns it now or if it is even in operation anymore. It's a revolutionary idea and would save large amounts of money, but how successful do you think it would have become had it been as prosperous as predicted? The Oil companies would have had something to say, (or maybe they did) about it.

It's truly a shame to see how big business and the oil companies find ways to bury this and similar technologies, just to pad their bottom line. Their quest for record profits will destroy this planet.

i am sure the scottish company was killed by oil industry. until goverments puts protections in place big busines will kill smaller competitors.
examples engine that ran on water. ge scientist who created diamonds.
now that was a major f##k up ge sold their diamond making process and patent to dbeers for a measly 1.2 billion dollars and the us goverment let them. i was under the belief that strategic technologies could not leave country.

its a foolish halfstep anyway
the true power of the universe is hydrogen
water is H2O
I have a great post on water cars
you are surronded by clean reuseable energy, oil is dirty

It's a shame we have to rely on the food orts of society to maintain an otherwise dying industry. It might seem an alternative answer to fossilzed fuel, but IMO, it's basically staving off the inevitable - More air polution.

This solution is comparable to: "Putting a bandaid on a rusty car".

Until we have properly devised other ecological/technological means of power resources, we are forced to polute our planet with these toxic gases.

How far down the road can we project as to where there won't be breathable air for humans, animals, etc. I think we all get the drift.

After that, who can say? Something's got to give.
