Post-Consumer Plastics Recycling

International legislation and growing environmental issues have imposed a lot of pressure on companies andmanufacturers to maximize the recycling systems. Such demands have had significant consequences for theplastic industries to use recycled plastics from the disposed plastic wastes. Therefore, this study is an initiativetaken by the Nanomaterials and Polymer Nanocomposites Laboratory (NPNL) at the University of British Columbiaand Recycling Alternative Inc. in Vancouver, BC, to obtain a comprehensive understanding of plastic recyclingand its market. Therefore, recycled plastics can be introduced as a cost-effective alternative source of plastics fora great range of applications.
