The Technology of Plastic Recycling

Join REMADE Institute’s thought leader and expert in polymers and recycling, Brian Riise, as he shares his perspective on the technology of plastic recycling in the US. Less than 10% of the plastics discarded in the US are recovered for recycling, with the remainder (over 30 million tons per year) ending up in landfills.

 In this webinar, you'll learn more about:

  • Technologies available to recycle waste plastics.

  • Review existing and emerging technologies available for cleaning, separating, purifying and compounding these waste plastics into high quality pellets suitable for use in new products.

  • Address the limitations of mechanical recycling and areas where chemical recycling might be viable options.
