Egyptian Teen Muslima Invents Million-Dollar Biofuel

It is really amazing, an Egyptian A 17-year-old scientist has figured out how to convert plastic bottles into bio fuel. She has discovered an economical or inexpensive way to turn plastic trash into fuel and it could be worth tens of millions of dollars a year.
This idea comes from Azza Faiad and attracted the attention of the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute. The institute gave the teen access to a lab and its researchers in order to help refine her trash to fuel formula.
Faiad discovered a inexpensive and abundant catalyst called aluminisilicate that drastically decreases the cost of converting plastic waste into gases like methane and propane, which can be turned into ethanol, what some scientists are calling “biofuel” because organic chemicals from plastic polymers she extracts, are the same chemicals extracted from vegetation to generate ethanol biofuel.
This procedure releases other chemicals that easily can also be recycled and sold.
Egypt produces a million tons of plastic trash every year, and its estimated Faiad’s method could convert that much trash into fuel worth$78 million every year.
In fact, she believes it could raise the total return to $163 million each year from Egypt’s plastic trash.
European Union Contest for Young Scientists has already honored Faiad with a prize for her work and she is now working on a patent for her trash to fuel process.
