Check out New World Technologies. It's a pretty interesting company that has converted all kinds of skeptics and now has a plant up and running in Carthage, MO. This is a huge advancement in changing waste products into usable fuel. Do they break the laws of thermodynamics by getting more energy than they produce? No. But they do use up waste products saving storage space and expense, plus they get a more than reasonable production of light crude in return.

I expect hundreds of these plants, mostly in small towns with animal processing facilities, by the end of the decade.

And, if I'm not mistaken, they are within shouting distance of producing oil that is competitive with current crude oil production methods.

"This plant will make 10 tons of gas per day, which will go back into the system to make heat to power the system," he says. "It will make 21,000 gallons of water, which will be clean enough to discharge into a municipal sewage system. Pathological vectors will be completely gone. It will make 11 tons of minerals and 600 barrels of oil, high-quality stuff, the same specs as a number two heating oil." He shakes his head almost as if he can't believe it. "It's amazing. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn't even consider us waste handlers. We are actually manufacturers—that's what our permit says. This process changes the whole industrial equation. Waste goes from a cost to a profit."

From an article, "Anything Into Oil" about the process; thermal depolymerization process, or TDP. Looks like it may be more efficient than other energy producing industries.
