Common plastic is actually made from fossil fuels. It's possible to convert plastic into a liquid fuel. Heating the plastic makes a toxic flammable gas that is then condensed to a liquid fuel. The result is a liquid fuel burnable in an internal combustion engine, and this liquid fuel is sourced from what would otherwise be filling a landfill.

At least that's the theory. It appears from video 5.2 in the series that his machine doesn't quite work, because it overheated the plastic.
