Default Turkey guts, the new gasoline

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_depolymerization
I was shown this today by a friend. This thermal depolymerization pretty interesting stuff and is exactly what the earth did over millions of years. Why isn't this technology being fast tracked? It solves a lot of our problems:
1)What do we do with our garbage?
2)How do we efficiently sort the recyclable waste we generate?
3)How do we eliminate foreign oil dependence
4)How do we efficiently produce energy

If you like baked-*** **** like this I also like to look at

its going to be bad *** when petroleum is replaced with something like this, that benefits the nation financially...rather than two big huge companies and a sheik.

You need to have a subscription to Science Magazine but here is an abstract of such a Dehydrogenase Enzyme used in the reactions in the article above. I would guess the greatest challenge would be keeping the enzyme in it's native form and also protecting the active site from chelators
