LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana company is working on a process for creating oil from plastics that can be refined into fuel.

The Pharos-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1JQEXa3) reports that Waste2Fuel, formerly of Indianapolis, has moved its headquarters to Logansport and plans to establish a testing facility with the hope of developing a commercial plant. Executive Director Steve Bracken says the process consists of converting a feedstock of waste plastics into a synthetic crude oil that can be refined into fuel.

Testing of various types of waste plastics will begin in mid- to late February. Bracken says this will include materials from bottles to destroyed automobiles.

He says the waste-plastics-to-fuel industry is still in its infancy and that Waste2Fuel has been involved about three years using a process developed in China.
