''We try to gather some waste plastics, bottles, sachet bags and any plastic material that has gone to waste. People throw them away and they flood the environment.
''That is what I go around to collect them. At first, I used to burn them, but later, I thought of processing them to get a different valuable product for society,'' he said.

The benefits of Adams' project

The project can potentially be a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to fuel production, with economic and environmental benefits as it reduces the amount of plastic waste in the environment while providing an accessible source of fuel.

With this project, Adams is helping to reduce the amount of plastic waste in landfills and the environment.

Using plastic to create fuel also has the potential to reduce vehicle emissions, provide employment opportunities for Ghanaians and help boost the local economy by providing new ways for people to make money.
