Chemical Recycling Makes Waste Plastic A Resource

“With an eye toward a circular economy, technology developers are advancing a host of new approaches to chemical recycling of post-use commodity plastics”

“One approach to addressing the problems associated with recycling mixed-stream plastics is to break down the plastics via thermochemical means, such as pyrolysis (thermal decomposition in the absence of oxygen), then separate them into fractions, similar to the refining of crude oil.”
