Emmanuel Kojo Nimo, a student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has wowed the rest of the world by converting plastic bottles into diesel.
According to Emmanuel, his genius idea was borne out of the frequent hikes in fuel prices due to the country’s economic turmoil.
In an interview, Emmanuel 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 is known for producing a number of plastic waste due to the lack of a plastic control policy. Emmanuel is on the right track to helping to tackle or salvage the menace. Emmanuel reaffirmed that 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.
