"Crayola has found a way to turn dried up markers into clean fuel capable of being used in boilers, ships and even cars."

"The dried up markers are then shipped to JBI, which specializes in recycling dense plastics -- like shampoo and pill bottles, and coffee containers. Entire markers are melted and compressed in machines that break down long complex plastic molecules thousands of atoms long. The machines process about 2,000 pounds of plastics per hour and produce clean fuel at a rate of a few gallons a minute."
