Scientific Tracks Abstracts : Environ Waste Management and Recycling
Although plastic polymers require greater processing as compared to many other recyclables, plastic recycling has become an increasingly important sector of recycling and waste management. Plastic recycling is the process of recovering different types of plastic material in order to reprocess them into varied other products, unlike their original form. An item made out of plastic is recycled into a different product, which usually cannot be recycled again. Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator, saves carbon dioxide, land filling and incineration. Polyethylene terepthalate (PET) and Polyurethane are among the most widely used polymers in wide variety of applications all over the globe. Recycling of these offers numerous products which have potential to be utilized in various industries including construction, insulation, coatings, composites etc to name a few.
