This process is characterized by its speed. Instead of requiring thousands of years and extreme conditions of heat and pressure, as does fossil fuel production, PDT achieves the same results in hours, using a series of tanks, pipes, pumps and boilers, which can be installed in the patio garage. Another relatively simple new technology has emerged, which can help transition from fossil fuel use. Any carbon-containing waste from a tire to animal waste can be turned into fuel if subjected to sufficient heat and pressure. This process is called Thermal Depolymerization and is very similar to the natural geological process that generates fossil fuels such as oil.
