Novel Method to Recycle Plastic

Cornell University scientists associating with US Department of Energy's Institute for Cooperative Upcycling of Plastics (iCOUP) have developed a new method for recycling High Density polyethylene. Using a novel catalytic approach, the researchers transformed waste HDPE plastic into a new material that can be recycled repeatedly without loss of quality. The team’s new approach converts used HDPE into a fully recyclable and potentially biodegradable material with the same mechanical and thermal...
