Frequently Asked Questions

  • How will I get waste plastic for my unit?
    Currently, power production is making its way through Research and Development. However, once distribution begins, we anticipate power cartridges will be available by retail or online ordering.
  • What types of plastic does it use?
    The Carismatic Generator is designed to utilize most all waste plastics, especially focusing on non-recyclable plastics. However, some of the higher numbered plastics (PVC, for example) contain additives that are hazardous. Our Research and Development team will continue to explore the best way to end the life of these plastics, without harmful emissions, and encourage recycling #1 and #2 plastics.
  • Does it work, and how much energy is produced?
    On April 19, 2022, the Carismatic Generator was formally issued Patent No. 11306916 by the USPTO where it is described by them as a “new and useful invention”. The USPTO only issues a patent for a device that can be proven to work through their scientific evaluations. The generator’s components have worked. Currently, we are awaiting parts that have been delayed due to supply chain issues. Very soon we expect to have a functional Phase 1 prototype, and we will move into testing to determine how much plastic equals how much electricity. Plastic has a very similar energy value to natural gas, so through our testing we will be able to nail down just how much plastic produces how much electricity.
  • Where do the emissions go?
    In short, the Carismatic Generator uses a dual catalytic converter to recapture and reuse any emissions, and then breaks down pollutants into its harmless components. Here's what that process looks like: We will be utilizing technology to extract pollutants from the incineration process. In the generator, we will be using an industrial catalytic converter as well as a process that was recently developed by the scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). They have developed an electrochemical process that uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol. The technology that the national lab develops is open sourced to the public. We will be using this process along with redirecting the ethanol back through the generator to create more electricity. Through testing, we expect to prove that we will be able to extract most all pollutants from the process.
  • Is using waste plastic as fuel really sustainable?
    We believe it is! Currently only 9% of waste plastic is actually reclaimed, and the world continues to manufacture more products using plastic. Let's change that!
  • How much plastic is needed to charge, let's say a Tesla, for example?
    Once testing is completed later this year, statistics will be available to determine how much plastic is needed to provide electricity for various products.
  • When do you anticipate the Carismatic Generator will be available to the public?
    Limited manufacturing is slated to begin late 2022 into the 1st quarter of 2023. However, retail sales to the general public may not begin until 2024.
  • How much will it cost?
    Currently, the retail cost is to be determined. However, it's estimated the cost will be less than a solar powered system. As a side benefit, the Carismatic Generator has a much smaller footprint with minimal installation.
  • Will the Carismatic Generator be available commercially?
    Yes! Once the smaller unit is in distribution, manufacturing of a larger commercial unit will begin. The Carismatic Generator is designed so that several units may be combined to increase the electrical output.
  • How does the Carismatic Generator work?
    The Carismatic Generator patented* process simply vaporizes waste plastic molecules to create high intensity heat which then captures steam pressure into a turbine. The turbine then routes that power into an internal generator, creating electrical energy. *Patent No. 11306916
