Revolutionary recycling? A new technology turns everyday trash into plastic treasure.

from The Washington Post via The Telegraph

Eight tons of trash are piled high at the entrance of a small factory in this tree-lined kibbutz - rotting food mixed with plastic bags, dirty paper, castoff bottles and containers, even broken toys. But nothing is headed for a landfill. Instead, what's next is a process that could revolutionize recycling.
