It seemed so simple.Take some plastic and drop it into this contraption, add heat, and out comes diesel fuel in petrol that can instantly be used to run a diesel generator.Surprisingly says inventor Christofer Costes, it is that simple.
这个看起来很简单。取一些塑料,放入这个装置,加热,然后就出来了汽油中的柴油燃料,可以立即用来运行柴油发电机。令人惊讶的是,发明家Christofer Costes说,就是这么简单。

Only a kilo of plastic gives a liter of liquid. It’s separated between diesel and petrol.The team that put this device together says the goal is to keep the units small and affordable that should allow developing countries to create fuel and help cut down on plastic wastes, Says Francois Danel of the French environmental group Earthwake, the mission of this machine is to collect plastic waste especially in developing countries and to create value and jobs.We want the model to be economically sustainable, so it can be duplicated more and more as time goes by.And this is the Nexo, a new fuel-cell car from Hyundai.
一公斤的塑料就可以产生一升液体。液体在柴油和汽油之间分开。将设备组合在一起的团队表示,他们的目标是保持设备小型化和低成本,,使发展中国家能够创造燃料并减少塑料废弃物。法国环保组织Earthwake的Francois Danel表示,该机器的任务是收集塑料废物,特别是在发展中国家,并创造价值和就业机会。我们希望该模型具有经济可持续性,这样他们以后才能越来越多地制造出来 。这是来自现代的新型燃料电池车Nexo。

Product managers Sylvie Childs says it’s only emission is clean oxygen.To make the car run, you need oxygen and hydrogen which in the fuel cell stack, I mixed there’s a chemical reaction and that produces electricity.
产品经理Sylvie Childs表示,该车唯一排放物是清洁的氧气。为了让汽车运行,燃料电池堆中的氧气和氢气是必要的,我混合它们,产生了一种化学反应并继而产生了电能。

To get oxygen, we don’t carry the oxygen on board. We use the oxygen that is contained in the air as we drive through.But that oxygen has to be incredibly clean, so it’s run through three different filters before it’s used to help power the car, and then it’s sent back into the atmosphere, cleaner than when it went in.The Hyundai engineers say driving 1.6 kilometers in their Nexo removes the same amount of pollution that a diesel truck puts into the atmosphere every 3.2 kilometers.
想获得氧气,我们不携带氧气。当我们开车时,我们使用空气中含有的氧气。但是氧气必须非常干净,因此它在用于帮助为汽车提供动力之前会经过三个不同的过滤器,然后它被送回大气层,比进入时更清洁。现代汽车的工程师表示,他们的Nexo行驶1.6公里可以消除柴油卡车每3.2公里向大气排出的污染。
